Mexico’s leftist presidential candidate discounts NAFTA

ADRES-MANUEL

Mexico’s leftist presidential election frontrunner, Andres Lopez Obrador is insistent his country should suspend talks to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, NAFTA, until a new government is elected in July.

His top foreign policy advisor re-echoed that, saying the collapse of NAFTA would not be a disaster for Mexico.

Lopez Obrador plans to pursue an alliance for economic growth instead of a focus on police and military relations, if he is elected.

The current government has stepped up efforts to diversify to other markets in response to U.S. President Donald Trump’s threats to scrap the 1990s-era NAFTA.
