Twenty seven years have passed since Canada, Mexico, and the US signed the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). One of the largest free trade zones in the world, NAFTA has greatly increased trade and investment among the three nations. Continental free trade helps companies to be more competitive globally. However, NAFTA remains controversial, with President Trump calling NAFTA the "worst trade deal maybe ever signed anywhere,". Recognizing that the Agreement should be updated rather than scraped, the US, Canada, Mexico agreed to renegotiate the free trade area. On November 30, 2018 signed the USMCA Agreement to revise/modernize NAFTA. The new USMCA still must be ratified by the US, MX, and Canada. Upon entry into force, USMCA will supersede NAFTA. It retains many NAFTA chapters with notable changes and additions to NAFTA. This webinar will discuss these changes and how they will affect you.

Why should you attend this webinar?

NAFTA and the USMCA present opportunities and challenges to nearly every business, and in nearly every industry operating within the US, Mexico, and Canada. Understanding these opportunities and challenges will quickly become an essential element of business strategy. 
You will be able to understand the background behind the renegotiation of NAFTA and how the new USMCA could greatly affect you and your organization. You will take away a rare insight into the workings of the USMCA and what it means for you. If certain USMCA changes take effect they could disrupt the global supply chain, jeopardizing factories that depend on imported components. In addition, a new NAFTA could raise the cost/price of cars, shoes, food, clothing, and other consumer goods. Further, it could discourage investment amid the uncertainty, and threaten reprisals from trading partners, risking barriers to American exports.
