Milos Barutciski on CTV on Trump's NAFTA Demands

July 17, 2017

Milos Barutciski appeared live on CTV for a one-on-one interview on what to expect as President Donald Trump prepares for NAFTA renegotiations with Canada and Mexico. For Canada, Milos says there will be some of the old disputes (softwood lumber, dairy, IP protection), some new issues such as ecommerce, and some of Trump's protectionist concerns on narrowing the scope of NAFTA and Buy America provisions. Milos says a challenge for the President is that his own constituency is divided on some of these issues, and while he has been very vocal about what he wants, he will also need to give in a renegotiation.
