The European Union and Mexico should look for ways to go “much further” to remove barriers to services commerce, EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht said.

Agriculture trade also could improve if the EU and Mexico are able to update existing agreements, De Gucht said in a speech to a business summit in Queretaro, Mexico. He also affirmed the EU’s intent to ink other North American deals.

“I expect to conclude a comprehensive agreement with Canada very soon,” De Gucht said. “Even more crucially, it is possible that we will start talks for a deep free trade agreement with the United States, if our leaders agree on this in the New Year.”
