The North American Trade Agenda: What Comes Next?VIEW EVENT DETAILS
Enacted in 1994, NAFTA has created the world’s largest free trade area of 450 million people. By 2015, trade among the three members increased to $1.14 trillion from $297 billion in 1993, accounting for a boost in economic growth, foreign direct investment, and job creation in all three countries. At the same time, NAFTA has been subject to strong criticism in the United States, with some blaming NAFTA for manufacturing job loss, dislocation, and rising income inequalities.
In anticipation of a potential NAFTA renegotiation, our program will bring together experts in these areas to discuss the terms and impact of NAFTA. What fate lies ahead for NAFTA? What improvements to NAFTA might President Trump seek? What impact would NAFTA renegotiations have on Asian companies and governments? What might Mexico and Canada want? What impact will this have on economic integration, regional supply chains, and different sectors of our economy?
Join the Americas Society/Council of the Americas and the Asia Society Policy Institute for a timely program on the integrated nature of the three North American economies and what might come next.
