The Mexican government says it is willing to discuss the North American Free Trade Agreement, NAFTA with US President-elect DONALD TRUMP.
Economy Minister ILDEFONSO GUAJARDO said Mexico would try to explain the strategic importance of the deal for the region to TRUMP, who has heavily criticised it.
Canadian Prime Minister JUSTIN TRUDEAU also said he was open to talks.
Nafta came into effect between the three countries in 1994.
Mr. TRUMP has however called it the worst trade deal the US has ever signed.
