The North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) comprises Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, an agreement which has eliminated barriers to trade, promoted conditions of fair competition, increased investment opportunities, provided protection for intellectual property rights, and established procedures for the resolution of disputes.
The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), commonly referred to as the "New NAFTA,"is essentially NAFTA 2.0. The USMCA has been adjusted to include changes for automakers, stricter labor and environmental standards, intellectual property protections, and digital trade provisions.
Why you should Attend:
The USMCA is the signed but not yet ratified blueprint for the more than 450 million people living in the North American free trade area of the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.
If you do not understand what NAFTA and the "New NAFTA" means, you could miss out on all sorts of profitable opportunities while subjecting you or your company to costly and aggravating fines and penalties, as well as lost customers
