Canadian NAFTA concessions on dairy possible: report


The Globe and Mail is reporting that Canada may be willing to grant more dairy access to American producers during the fifth round of the North American Free Trade Agreement, but will stand firm against U.S. protectionist demands, according to Canadian sources. Ottawa, sources said, will remain at the table, noting Canadian officials thinks they can build negotiating momentum by reaching agreements that would slash red tape at the border and allow for international e-commerce.

As Macleans writes, an American walkout is still very much a possibility. “No one should be surprised if Trump declares in a 5 a.m. tweet that he’s pulling the U.S. out of NAFTA — and nothing about what comes next is straightforward,” Aaron Hutchins writes.Meanwhile, Reuters has the latest on how the Canadian dollar is faring ahead of the talks.
