    With NAFTA on the cliff, Mexico betting strongly to update free trade agreement with Europe

    Mexican negotiators are in Brussels this week, with the two sides due to reconvene next week in Mexico.

    Mexico believes it can conclude a new free-trade agreement with the European Union before the end of February, Mexican officials have said. The EU and Mexico intend to update a trade deal agreed 21 years ago that largely covers industrial goods. They want to add farm products, more services, investment and government procurement, and include provisions on labor standards and environmental protection.
