Employers Confederation

The Employers Confederation of Mexico (COPARMEX) said that Mexico and the United States should strengthen and not to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). (Gonzalez Sada, 2009) What to renegotiate a treaty which, from my point of view, for fourteen years has not resulted in nothing more than pure disadvantages to Mexico? During this time Mexico has been in total meltdown and that Americans "use" our country as a means of important international trade and maximize the so-called Free Trade Agreement, which is worth mentioning that they see as agreement and not as a treaty as this was stipulated and held by our former President Carlos Salinas de Gortari in 1993, briefly Americans can do and undo as they please, inventing non-tariff restrictions and other safeguards. We have for example the case of Mexican motor carriers on U.S. highways, never negotiated in NAFTA that trucks wishing to enter U.S. territory need some "quality" to travel on their roads and yet it happens and how many more cases. It is very important, I think, strengthen and not renegotiate NAFTA, it is clear that the treaty of free trade used by our country and we should get more out of this situation, which really is a great advantage to be the main neighbor United States trade in America and stop being their "cushion" or "trash" as we are known colloquially, if NAFTA were raised better and make good decisions, when the U.S. sneezes, Mexico did not even show symptoms of disease .
