Cross-Border Business Forum
February 22, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Our first Cross-Border Business Forum of the year will be a dedicated discussion on NAFTA’s role in facilitating an integrated supply chain and the impact it makes on our local economy.
While the future of NAFTA is in question, this forum will serve as an opportunity to discuss its significance, how it contributes to growth of business and what we can do to advocate in support of critical elements of NAFTA which must be preserved.
