NAFTA Negotiation at Warp Speed, May Not Be Successful according to USTR

NAFTA Negotiation at Warp Speed, May Not Be Successful according to USTR Lighthizer said: we don't know whether we're going to get to a conclusion. That's the problem. We're running very quickly somewhere. Lighthizer says the U.S. would like to reach an agreement and conclude the negotiations with Canada and Mexico by the end of this year. He refused to answer any questions about whether the administration planned to propose a sunset provision to automatically terminate NAFTA after five years, unless countries agree to extend, according to Politico.

Lighthizer made the comments during a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. He also commented on China, calling the nation an unprecedented threat because of policies that subsidize domestic production, create national champions, force technology transfers and distort markets.
