While Mexican and Canadian officials have expressed dismay at the US proposals, they have publicly taken a less confrontational stance, with three more negotiating rounds scheduled through December.

"We must ensure that decisions we make today do not come back to haunt us tomorrow", Mexico Economy Secretary Ildefonso Guajardo added, alluding to the USA proposals to rework the free trade pact.

It governs how much of a auto has to be manufactured in North American to avoid import taxes in the three countries that make up NAFTA. The U.S. also proposed that half of the parts that come from North America must originate from the United States.

Among the most contentious, he and other analysts said, is a proposal that would allow NAFTA to expire after five years unless all three countries agree to renew it.
