NAFTA at 20 Years

EVENT OVERVIEW:

Date: Thursday, November 7, 2013

Join this discussion with experts from the three countries of Mexico, Canada and the United States which will analyze the economic impact that NAFTA has had on the three counties since its signing.  The discussion will also focus on the shared challenges ahead, the future of the regional economies and the partnership for prosperity of the North American Region.

“NAFTA was designed to promote economic growth by spurring competition in domestic markets and promoting investment from both domestic and foreign sources. It has worked. North America firms are now more efficient and productive.  They have restructured to take advantage of economies of scale in production and intra-industry specialization.”

— Gary Clyde Hatbauer and Jeffery J. Schott, experts at the Peterson Institute for International Economics and the authors of NARTA Revisited: Achievements and Challenges
