Latin America trade: Regional powers seek closer ties

Latin American leaders pledge to deepen commercial and economic ties at a meeting in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, as they seek to counter the risk of a deepening trade war.

    The leaders of Latin America's top economic powers have pledged to accelerate the process of free trade in the region.

    They made the commitments in Mexico, in what is being seen as a response to the growing protectionism from the United States.

    But there are questions over whether the region's current free trade fervour could wane as new leaders prepare to take over.

    Al Jazeera's John Holman reports from Puerto Vallarta.
