NAFTA 2.0 Forum

January 29, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Event Navigation

Understanding the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA)

A revised trilateral agreement was reached on September 30th which will govern more than $1.3 trillion worth of trade between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. If approved, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) would replace the North American Free Trade Agreement or NAFTA. While the two documents are largely similar, USMCA updates various chapters in NAFTA and includes additional chapters which were included in the Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP.

This forum will provide an overview of the revised agreement, next steps in the ratification process and hear from private and public sector stakeholders as to the possible impacts on our binational region. Attendees will be welcomed by Kurt Honold, President of Consejo Coordinador Empresarial Tijuana, before hearing from a panel of experts.

****This dialogue will be in Spanish. There will not be translation services available****

Attendance to this forum is complimentary, but registration is required.
