For more than two decades, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has served as a cornerstone of the U.S.-Mexico relationship and North American economic competitiveness. Yet, the new presidential administration has created uncertainty around the future of NAFTA. On September 21, in Washington, D.C., the University of California and Tecnológico de Monterrey will convene academics, policymakers and experts in a fact-based discussion on the renegotiation of NAFTA and the state of U.S.-Mexico relations.
The forum, held at the UCDC center in Washington, D.C, will bring together a diverse group of thought-leaders for dialogue around the implications of the renegotiation of this important trade agreement on industries, jobs, and growth across the United States, Mexico and Canada. In particular, discussions will explore the importance of the agreement at the city, state, and regional level, using California and the Western U.S. as a model for important trade relationships with Mexico. The forum will leverage insights from top UC academics and others in dynamic conversations on key questions around the future of NAFTA and U.S.-Mexico relations.
