Ottawa will host the third round of talks over the next five days on the North American free trade deal, which is being renegotiated at the behest of U.S. President Donald Trump, who has called the accord the worst "in history" and last month cast doubt that the ongoing efforts to revamp the deal can be successful.
Also on Wednesday, negotiators will focus on the arm's length trade dispute settlement mechanism, which Canada and Mexico call essential but the USA wants to scrap, and the controversial investor state dispute settlement mechanism, whereby companies can sue a government for allegedly discriminatory practices.
These data debunk the claim that USA content in the form of parts is so high that we shouldn't worry about headline gross-deficit figures.
After round two of NAFTA talks saw the US target Mexican labour standards and now reports of anxiety within the Canadian auto sector over the Americans angling for more USA content, Trump's team has made it clear they aren't angling for all three countries to get their fair share, it's about seeing more being made in America, she said.
The report comes as chief US negotiator John Melle prepares to present new text proposals at the third round of NAFTA talks in Ottawa starting on Saturday, where he said "more challenging issues will start taking center stage".
Some made-in-America hawks, including Dingell, have pushed the Trump administration to advocate for a toughening of requirements for parts made in the U.S., Canada or Mexico to qualify for duty-free treatment.
Rules of origin - one of the most complicated and contentious issues on the table, particularly when it comes to the auto sector - is on the agenda for the third round which starts Saturday in Ottawa.
Canadian officials have said they don't expect any breakthroughs during the five-day session and suspect the USA will wait until closer to the end of negotiations to lay all its cards on the table. Some analysts are warning against tinkering with the NAFTA origin rules to raise USA content level requirements for NAFTA products, particularly in the auto sector, arguing that the move could backfire against an already strong North American industry sector.

"Thousands of American factory workers have lost their jobs because of these provisions. So rules of origin will just to go to Mexico unless we fix the Mexican problem".
