A North America-European Union Free Trade Agreement? The role of Canada and Mexico as the U.S. and E.U. negotiate the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

As the United States and the European Union begin the negotiation of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, please join us for a conference to examine the challenges and opportunities of including Canada and Mexico in the agreement.

Since the implementation of NAFTA, the United States, Mexico and Canada have developed deep economic ties and an integrated manufacturing platform. Given these bonds, the negotiation between the U.S and Europe of what would be the largest free trade area in the world is surely of profound consequence to each of the countries of North America. At this event, experts will explore ways in which the three countries of North America could work together with Europe to create a mutually beneficial agreement, as well as some of the challenges of incorporating additional parties in the negotiations.
