Global Conference 2017
GC2017 program det

With the election of Donald Trump, the North American Free Trade Agreement has been under the microscope as representatives from the United States, Mexico and Canada consider ways to reform the agreement. The participants in this session will examine important economic changes since NAFTA was conceived over 30 years ago from various perspectives, as well as how NAFTA might increase the continent's competitiveness in global markets and spur entrepreneurship. Potential questions:

  • Should NAFTA be scrapped all together or simply tweaked?
  • What considerations from the original agreement have changed most?
  • What are the win-win opportunities for NAFTA?
  • How big of a role should intellectual property, agriculture, energy, textiles, labor, etc. play?
