On January 1, 1994, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) went into effect. On May 18, 2017, the Trump administration notified Congress that the President intended to renegotiate NAFTA. Renegotiations with Canada and Mexico began in August, 2017. On January 29, 2018, trade ministers from Canada, Mexico and the United States wrapped up the sixth round of NAFTA negotiations in Montreal, Canada with reports of “some” progress being made. This week, negotiators began a seventh round, meeting in Mexico City for additional discussions.
Has NAFTA been successful? Will renegotiated terms of the agreement enhance its effectiveness? How will proposed changes affect continued trade with Mexico and Canada? Who would be hardest hit by withdrawing from NAFTA?
In an effort to discuss these issues and others, MITA has put together a collection of presenters who will speak from a variety of perspectives.
