With the publication of more than a hundred goals, it is hard to say how many of them will be handsome and well-adopted in the renegotiation of the NAFTA.
"If we integrate further and make Mexico more competitive versus China ... even if our exports rise, U.S.jobs will rise, because when we export (to the United States), they're exporting too (via USA content)", said Jaime Serra, a former trade minister who led the initial NAFTA negotiations for Mexico.
Mexico and Canada have both said they would push their own agendas at the talks.

President Donald Trump said the US wants to reduce trade imbalances with Mexico and Canada and boost exports of everything from farm goods to financial services as it prepares to kick off talks to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement.
The ministry said it would work "to achieve a constructive negotiation process that will allow trade and investment flows to increase and consolidates cooperation and economic integration to strengthen North American competitiveness". That means that Canada and Mexico could become ensnared if the administration decides to do something to, for example, protect the USA solar industry, a safeguard case it's now considering.

In his introduction, Lighthizer reiterated President Trump's promise to renegotiate NAFTA or to revoke the agreement. Achieving Trump's campaign-promised NAFTA deficit-lowering and USA job creation goals will require changes to NAFTA that GOP congressional leaders and the corporate lobby oppose and about which this document remains vague. Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says she is prepared to start negotiating.
Even before Trump was elected, there were concerns about what a renegotiation - or threatened withdrawal - from NAFTA might mean to the American auto industry, with so many supplies moving back and forth across an integrated North American market.
The negotiating objectives also include adding a digital economy chapter and incorporating and strengthening labor and environment obligations that are now in NAFTA side agreements.
As the Trump administration calls for "buy American" provisions, Trudeau says the government will continue to accept suggestions sent to its online survey and now plans to have town hall meetings in the future to directly liaise with Canadians.
