Renegotiating NAFTA, What’s on the Table
Wednesday, September 6, 2017
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. U.S. CDT
The US, Mexico and Canada will engage in substantial negotiation to shape the terms in which the NAFTA region, (one of the most competitive regions in the world) will compete not only among themselves but with the rest of the world.
Three experts from Mexico, Canada and the United States will share their insights, current viewpoints, and negotiating positions of their respective countries, as well as the potential outcomes of one of the toughest commercial negotiations the members of NAFTA have ever faced. The results of these negotiations will most likely lay the foundation for the role this region will play in the near future.
