North American heads of state met in Mexico on Wednesday to discuss the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
Yesterday U.S. President Barack Obama and his Chilean counterpart, Sebastian Piñera, met at the White House to discuss economic development, trade and their commitment to the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)—a free trade agreement being negotiated among 11 Pacific Rim countries.
Today, Chilean President Sebastián Piñera will set off on a week-long trip through the hemisphere, making his first official visit to the United States since he took office in 2010. He will also travel to Canada, El Salvador and Panama.
Assuming the U.S. government will be operational past the March 18 funding deadline, President Obama will make his first trip to Latin America from March 19-23.
