During the campaign, US President Donald Trump repeatedly pledged to either renegotiate or withdraw the US from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Although it is yet to be seen if his campaign rhetoric will turn into policy, multinational companies should expect a number of vital changes that will impact their business operations if NAFTA is renegotiated or the US withdraws from the agreement. Companies should closely monitor the ongoing developments in this topic and take contingency plan to mitigate the risk of a NAFTA exit.
In a two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will give insights on the possibility of either NAFTA renegotiation or repeal. The implications to the US trade policy, particularly to US companies with operations in Canada and Mexico, will also be given emphasis. Speakers will also offer contingency planning strategies that may help the audience prepare for any changes in NAFTA.
Key topics include:
- Overview of NAFTA
- The Role of Congress
- Withdrawal, Amendment, or No Change?
- Impacts of Full Withdrawal to NAFTA
- Other International Trade Issues to Monitor
- Preparing for a Contingency Plan
