Mexican Buyers Preparing for a Post-NAFTA World — Many in agriculture talking about the threat of withdrawal of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Citing a recent . Grains Council trip to Mexico, CEO Tom Sleight voiced concern about NAFTA. “Telling comments came from our past chairman (Chip Councell) who has been there before a few times already this year. He heard similar comments on uncertainty on the next negotiations and there’s concern. He says there was more acceptance maybe something was going to happen. Buyers were starting to crystalize their plans and some acting on the plans to buy from alternative sources. That’s a change in attitude a little.” Sleight thinks plan B means getting busy with other trade agreements across other parts of the world, but it’s a little early to speculate.
