from Engineering News-Record
After a series of negotiations between the U.S. and Canada on a new softwood-lumber trade agreement, the countries' top trade officials say "significant differences remain" between the two sides but indicate further talks are planned. U.S. Trade Rep. Michael Froman and Canadian Minister of International Trade Chrystia Freeland said in a June 17 joint statement that there had been "100 days of intensive engagement" and "significant advances in exploring the key issues and priorities." But there is no deal yet.
