      US, Mexico, Canada finalise trade deal

      The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalise their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations. However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

      US and Canada reach trade deal

      The US and Canada have reportedly agreed on a trade deal that would save the North American Free Trade Agreement as a trilateral bloc after more than a year of tortuous negotiations. According to media reports Canada agreed late Sunday, just hours before a midnight deadline, to settle differences, with both sides making concessions and seal the deal, rescuing a three-country, $1.2trn open-trade zone that had been about to collapse after nearly a quarter century. The new deal is going to be known as the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement or USMCA.
