NAFTA renegotiation with Canada may influence trade talks with Japan

On the second round of “free, fair, and reciprocal” (FFR) trade talks between the U.S. and Japan to be held around Sept. 21, Nikkei speculated that the prospects might be affected by the Trump administration’s NAFTA renegotiation with the Canadian government. The paper projected that if a deal with Canada has not been reached before the U.S. and Japan delegations meet, the USG will probably continue to focus on talks with Ottawa, but if a new NAFTA agreement has been forged, Washington will probably zero in on Japan and apply greater pressure to seek concessions on beef and autos by hinting at raising tariffs on Japanese auto imports.
