At the 16th Canada-Mexico Interparliamentary Meeting, legislators from both countries agreed there is a need to bolster the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Since its inception in 1994, it has presented great advantages in competitiveness for both nations. The legislators also spoke in favor of a revision to the agreement.

Alberto Juraidini Rumilla, an Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) Deputy, said that the NAFTA does not represent a risk for the competitiveness of Mexico because there is a clause in the document which deals with that issue. Canada and Mexico will work together to strengthen the region in regards to other economic regions which have a stronger competitiveness agenda.

Canadian legislator, Randy Hoback, pointed out that the NAFTA has been very beneficial for the region. However, he spoke in favor of revising the document in regard to fields which were not considered at the time of its creation. “Although the NAFTA was a successful agreement back in ‘94, there were many things that were not considered. For instance, no progress was made in regard to the elimination of bureaucracy and certain rules,” added Hoback.

In related news, the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW), endorsed the proposal of Canadian Senator Mobina Jaffer, which would entitle temporary agricultural workers the right to be heard. The Senator said working conditions for these kinds of workers are inadequate, unsafe and unhealthy.
