WASHINGTON (Reuters) – International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde said on Saturday a revision of long-standing trade agreements, if done well, can be a “win-win” for all countries involved.

“It has to be fair, certainly something that everyone agrees upon,” she said, when asked about trade deal renegotiations such as the one for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that is now under way.
