Dairy, Auto Tariffs Highlighted As US, Canada Talk NAFTA

The U.S. and Canada resumed NAFTA trade negotiations Tuesday , which both Canada's Foreign Minister and President Donald Trump said are productive so far.  But Canada's dairy market  and auto tariff threats could have an impact on how the talks turn out.  Media outlets report that  Canada may offer a compromise on dairy  in order to reach a trade agreement by the Oct.

1 deadline.

That could include giving the U.S. certain access to its dairy market, something American farmers and President Trump would likely applaud.

Currently, Canada keeps dairy product imports on a tight quota, and has implemented a pricing system designed to benefit Canadian farmers.  And earlier Tuesday,  Canadian Prime Minister Justin said his country wouldn't give in to any pressure from Trump , who's threatened auto tariffs if they can't strike a deal.

Trudeau also warned of "massive disruption" to the auto sector, including job losses for both countries, should Trump follow through on that threat.  The two sides are aiming to come to an agreement by the end of September.

The U.S. hopes  Canada will agree to  the terms of a preliminary trade deal it made with Mexico last month.

Congress would still need to  consider and ratify the deal .  Additional reporting from Newsy affiliate  CNN .
