In ir bilateral negotiations on North American Free Trade Agreement NAFTA, US and Mexico have made a breakthrough. US President Donald Trump said it was a really good bargain with particular significance for industry and agriculture. It was "an incredible deal for both parties".

Canada is not currently involved in negotiations. This is caused by considerable tensions with USA. Lastly, US punitive tariffs on steel and aluminum imports had severely burdened relationship with two neighbors Mexico and Canada – now agreement between US and Mexico could possibly build a bridge for Canada.
