Canadian Dollar was lifted mildly as the USMCA could finally clear its way to Congress approval before the end of the year. It’s reported that US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner are due to fly to Mexico City on Tuesday for meetings to try to pin down final details of the agreement. Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland would join the meeting there too.
US President Donald Trump said “I’m hearing very good things. I’m hearing from unions and others that it’s looking good. Kushner also acknowledged that “it looks like we’re making pretty good progress.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said “We’re close. We’re not quite finished yet, we’re within range.” She added that the final language could be set by Tuesday, which would bring Democrats to a “moment of truth” on whether to proceed to passage.
