NAFTA Modernization Round IV: NAFTA Next, No NAFTA, or NAFTA 'Notty'

Start Date:10/27/2017

Start Time:2:00 PM EDT

Duration:60 minutes


We have called a "timeout" in the NAFTA Modernization process and questions remain as to whether the NAFTA Parties and the North American business communities will continue on this course, or change and create new directions. In this once-in-a-generation trade moment, there's a great deal to evaluate over the first four rounds and discuss contingency plans for a variety of possible outcomes.

We invite you to join us for an informative complimentary webinar with our attorneys in Canada and the U.S. as they explain how to navigate through these shifting policies and the impacts on your global supply chains.

Key Discussion Topics:

  • Status report of the Rounds I-IV of the NAFTA
  • Assessment of the likely legal and political implications of next steps
  • Potential NAFTA withdrawal scenarios that include a "patchwork" or "Notty" NAFTA, reversion back to the Canadian-U.S. Free Trade Agreement, state-provincial solutions, among other possibilities
  • A review of NAFTA in the context of other U.S. and Canada trade agreements

This webinar is complimentary, but registration is required. We look forward to your participation.
