Trump and NAFTA: What to Expect in 2018 and Beyond

Start: Mar 5, 2018 6:00:00 PM

UCL Institute of the Americas
Professor Earl Fry (Brigham Young University) - The Trump administration appears to be determined to ‘modernise’ – and renegotiate - NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement involving the US, Canada and Mexico. This seminar presentation will examine what may transpire in terms of the political and economic relationship between the US and Canada and the future prospects for NAFTA. The ‘final’ set of NAFTA modernisation negotiations is scheduled February 26-March 6 in Mexico City. However, some believe that negotiations might drag into late 2018 or even 2019, although Mexico will hold its pivotal presidential elections on July 1 and the U.S. its congressional elections on November 6. What are the outstanding issues in the negotiations, and what will be the final outcome - NAFTA Renewed, NAFTA Destroyed, or a Zombie NAFTA?
