Canada's Trudeau accuses China of 'dumping' steel on global markets

But both Mexico and Canada rejected Trump's linkage of the levies to the ongoing NAFTA talks.

He said he is happy to improve Nafta and continue trying to renegotiate, but that the new tariffs are "unfair" and could be damaging to Canada, the United States, and Mexico.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is heading to Canadian steel country this week on a three-day tour created to shore up the industry.

"We know the tremendous effort that steel and aluminum workers put in every day to provide for their families, support their communities, and build businesses that are competitive in the global market".

His comments came amid rising trade tensions in the wake of a United States decision to impose steep tariffs on imported steel and aluminium.

"There's a lot of steel out there looking for a home", said Herman.

Mr. Trudeau said his government is working hard to ensure that the exemptions stay in place and took issue with the U.S. President's decision to use the tariffs as a bargaining chip.

She is to meet US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Congressional leaders and others.

"But I accept what the president said", Trudeau added, "that as long as there is a free-trade deal in North America there won't be tariffs".

Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland termed the two things "separate issues", while Mexico's economy ministry said "the negotiation of the NAFTA should not be subject to conditions outside the process".

The proclamation instead pointed to economic integration between the U.S., Canada and Mexico, the fact the U.S. also exports steel to both Canada and Mexico, and the three countries' shared commitment to national security and addressing global excess capacity in steel production. The tour was planned before the tariff exemption was confirmed but will still go ahead despite the exemption, with stops in Alma., Que, Hamilton, Ont., Sault Ste. The steel tariff investigation was launched to see the impact of steel imports on USA national security. Marie and Regina this week.

This form of processing allows it to be stamped "made in Canada" and could avoid the USA tariff, which is why the federal enforcement officials will need to identify the country of origin of the original steel, said one industry executive who asked that his name not be used because he is not authorized to speak to the media.

The Canadian government has vowed to retaliate if duties are imposed, but the prime minister did not answer directly when asked what measures it might take.
