Nov. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Mexico is seeking to join discussions on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk said.
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said earlier today that the country is also interested in entering trade talks.
“The United States welcomes the interest of Canada and Mexico, our neighbors and largest export markets, in seeking to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership talks,” Kirk said in a statement today. “Along with Japan’s similar announcement this week, the desire of these North American nations to consult with TPP partners demonstrates the broadening momentum and dynamism of this ambitious effort toward economic integration across the Pacific.”
