COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) – The renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is set for next week.

For the past three months, Ohio native and trade representative under Ronald Regan, Robert Lighthizer, has been preparing to meet with officials from Mexico and Canada.

In July, the Trump administration released a list of objectives it had for this renegotiation.

Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, reached out to President Donald Trump’s transition team days after he was elected. He expressed a desire to work with the administration on this issue and put forth four items that he wanted to see focused on.
