The long, drawn-out North American Free Trade negotiations with the United States are having an effect on business in the Quinte area.
Some businesses from around the world, considering a location in North America, have veered off because of the slow-going NAFTA talks that have dragged on for more than a year.
In an interview, Quinte News asked Quinte Economic Development Commission Executive director Chris King about the consequences in the Quinte area.
King says he’s confidant the issues between Canada and the U.S. are going to be resolved and there’s going to be a free trade agreement.
King notes, “There’s some uncertainty but, at the same time, the economy is doing well.”
