Key points:

  1. In light of China joining the WTO 25+ years ago, NAFTA has strengthened North America’s position globally.
  2. The strength of NAFTA is as a result of a longstanding cooperative effort by the U.S., Mexico “and” Canada.
  3. The world has changed over the past 25+ years and there is room for updating/improving the NAFTA agreement.
  4. Mexico views its relationship with the U.S. from five interrelated perspectives.
