(Reuters) - U.S. officials have begun informal talks to prepare for new negotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), David Cohen, the country's ambassador to Canada, told CBC News in an interview published Saturday.

"On the U.S. side, we are just beginning to have our internal discussions about what we might like to talk about with Mexico and Canada as the sunset approaches," Cohen told CBC News, adding that the process would be devoid of the "existential drama" that gripped the negotiations in 2017-2018.

NAFTA was substituted by the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) in 2020.

'the process would be devoid of the "existential drama" that gripped the negotiations in 2017-2018.'  --  Because this is what you miss?

Nothing more than bureaucrats negotiating an agreement on how they can minimize government meddling.  A make work project; they intervene in the markets over time and then every so often try and pare it back with an agreement.  Time to shrink government so more benefits of the free markets can flow to citizens and not just the politicians, bureaucrats, and the politically connected.

New negotiations gotta happen "as the sunset approaches".  That is if you don't want this agreement about free trade to expire.  You can blame Trump for not setting the expiration date further in the future.
