While AMERICA’s new leadership heavily questioned both the existing and proposed international trade agreements, the EU and Mexico in the other direction.
EU trade commissioner Cecilia Malmström and Mexico’s economy minister Ildefonso Guajardo has agreed to accelerate negotiations to upgrade the current free trade agreement.
"We take our trading relationship in the 2000s. Together, we are witnessing a worrying rise in protectionism around the world. As like-minded partners, we must now stand up for the idea of a global and open cooperation," writes Malmström and Guajardo, in a joint statement.
Two new rounds of negotiations are planned for the beginning of april and the end of June.
