The worldwide trade secretary told MPs he was "disappointed" with the U.S. president's decision to impose steel and aluminium tariffs on imports from the European Union, which came into force on Friday.

The Dairy Farmers of Canada branded as "troubling" and "worrisome" comments Trudeau made on NBC's Meet the Press that Canada was considering allowing USA dairy greater access to the Canadian market as part of the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

The peso turned lower after White House National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow said Trump was "seriously considering " splitting North American Free Trade Agreement talks into separate processes for Mexico and Canada.

Canada has threatened to impose retaliatory tariffs of up to $16.6 billion on some steel and aluminum products and other goods from the US - including pizza and quiche - beginning July 1. "To really accomplish our goals of improving society, there are other things that we need to do".

But many US manufacturers moved production south of the border to capitalize on Mexico's low labor costs, then shipped goods back to the United States. When you have to compromise with a whole bunch of countries, you get the worst of the deals. That left a U.S.

While David Koch was the Libertarian nominee for vice president in 1980, he shared little of his brother's political zeal.

Trudeau's office declined direct comment on the letter and instead referred to comments Monday in question period, in which Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay once again defended Canada's supply management system. "Everybody loses in a protracted trade war", International Monetary Fund spokesman Gerry Rice said last week. Those include China's assistance to state-owned enterprises, investment restrictions on foreign firms, forced technology transfer, industrial policy, and the protection of intellectual property.

At the same time as imposing the tariff on US pork, Mexico opened a 350,000-tonne quota for imports of the meat from other countries.

The head of the Canadian Steel Producers Association says his group isn't asking for government money to help its members deal with new USA tariffs - not yet, at any rate.

U.S. pork will be levied with a 20 percent tariff by Mexico in retaliation to USA trade barriers on steel and aluminum, Reuters reports quoting two industry officials.

A Chinese government statement said the talks in Beijing "produced positive and concrete developments" but it didn't provide details.

Yet it's far from clear that separate discussions by the United States with Mexico and Canada could leave the three-nation NAFTA deal altered but intact.

"The delegations will now report back to receive guidance on the path forward".

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer also urged Trudeau to accelerate the retaliation.

Last week, Trudeau opened the door to the possibility of direct support for metals companies, saying his government will work to protect Canadian steel and aluminum jobs.

Mexico will import more pork products from Europe after imposing a 20 percent tariff on USA pork legs and shoulders in retaliation to steel tariffs, Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said on Tuesday.

The trade conflict with the Chinese could escalate in coming months, putting at risk multinational businesses that depend on China to source and sell products.
