The European Union won’t clinch a trade deal with the U.S. by Nov. 1 as originally targeted, according to the bloc’s chief trade negotiator, reports Farm Progress.

European Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom reiterated that the EU is prepared to make a limited agreement with the U.S. that would remove tariffs on industrial goods.

However, she told reporters in Stockholm Friday that “those discussions haven’t started yet as the U.S. wants to include agricultural products and that is not what the EU wants.”
