In a new video report, Connecting the Dots: The outlook for NAFTA, Barclays’ Macro Research analyst Aziz Sunderji discusses what’s ahead for renegotiations of this 25 year old agreement.

Officials from the US, Canada, and Mexico just completed the seventh round of renegotiation, but the partners remain far apart on some key issues. And with the Mexican presidential election approaching, time is short.

The outlook for NAFTA video report highlights:

  • The main reasons driving the NAFTA renegotiation and the controversial terms under discussion
  • The growing potential risks of breakdowns in the agreement renegotiation, including the cross-asset economic and industry implications for Mexico, Canada, and the United States 
NAFTA is almost 25 years old and it needs to be updated to reflect changes in trade, the rise of ecommerce, for example. Also, it needs to be modernized to reflect changes in labor and environmental standards.
Aziz Sunderji, Director – Barclays Macro Research
