Mexico debates free-trade deal's benefits

Conference to take a look at whether the North America Free Trade Agreement has helped improve Mexicans' lives.

    It was a deal that created the largest free trade region in the world, but 20 years on there is still debate over the benefits of the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

    It is an issue that will be discussed at a conference in the Mexican city of Toluca on Wednesday.

    Al Jazeera's Adam Raney reports from Mexico City, taking a look at whether NAFTA has helped improve the lives of Mexicans.
