The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is a trilateral trade agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico that went into effect on January 1, 1994.  The agreement represents the important economic relationship between the three countries that has driven commercial development across North America. It is intended to spur economic activity within North America through the elimination of barriers that hinder trade and private investments between Canada, the United States and Mexico.

This webinar will focus on:

  • NAFTA, its origins and economic impact;
  • The status of NAFTA today;
  • The relationship between NAFTA and other trade agreements (EU, TPP, etc.); and
  • The future of NAFTA and potential trade wars.
