U.S., Mexico, Canada Ministers Expected to Sign Trade Pact Nov. 30

Cabinet ministers from the U.S., Mexico and Canada will sign a new trade agreement on Nov. 30, Mexico’s economy minister said Thursday.

According to a Reuters article, Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo told reporters that the deal will be signed in Buenos Aires, Argentina. 

It is still to be determined whether the presidents and prime minister will participate in the signing, Guajardo says.

After more than a year of negotiations to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement, the U.S. and Canada reached a deal in September. Mexico and the U.S. had already struck a bilateral agreement.

Legislators from the three countries still have to approve the pact, known as the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), before it goes into effect.
