EVENT: NAFTA Renegotiated – The Winners and Losers
What is at stake? How will this work?
Please join Arent Fox LLP and Georgetown University McCourt School of Public Policy on Monday, April 3 for an engaging policy discussion on President Trump’s plan to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the potential issues surrounding its overhaul that could play out in the near future. Striking a new deal on NAFTA will likely serve as a lightning rod for controversy in other areas.
President Trump has recently pledged to renegotiate the 23-year-old trade agreement, or scrap it entirely. Any changes to NAFTA could have major implications for businesses and other interests in the US, Canada, and Mexico. This forum will examine the consequences in changing NAFTA, including the likely impact on the American manufacturing sector, the taxpayers, and the overall economy. The panelists will discuss the elements that are likely to be renegotiated, and how a renegotiation is likely to impact international relations with Canada and Mexico.
We are pleased to announce former US Deputy Trade Representative Robert Holleyman as the keynote speaker.
The forum will feature several noted trade policy leaders from Arent Fox, the industry, and Georgetown's McCourt School of Public Policy. Speakers will be announced soon.
Registration and networking will begin at 8:30am with coffee and light breakfast. The speaking program will begin at 9:00am.
