With Mexico and the United States having hammered out a deal in principle resolving their outstanding trade issues, the spotlight is now on Canada to reach a deal with Washington and save the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Canadian foreign minister Chrystia Freeland has now flown to Washington for new talks. The negotiation process had been frozen since a well-publicized falling out between Prime Minister Trudeau and President Trump at the G7 summit earlier this year. Ideally, an agreement would be reached before Friday, allowing enough time for it to clear US Congress before outgoing Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto departs in November.
