Join the Centre for Business Law for a conversation about NAFTA renegotiations. Canada, Mexico and the United States are engaged in a staggering process of renegotiation of a complex trade agreement. The three parties are trying to redesign the treaty in accordance with three different lists of economic and political priorities. The outcome of these negotiations will have significant impact on trade in North America. How will new NAFTA rebalance trade between the parties? What legal rules of NAFTA will be rewritten? How will disputes be resolved? Find out from our panelists:
