The new US administration has been highly critical of NAFTA since Trump took office this year. NAFTA, or the North American Free Trade Agreement, has eliminated most tariffs on trade among the United States, Mexico and Canada, and the country is watching anxiously as government officials are currently debating the future of this treaty.

An upcoming talk at Texas A&M University will discuss the strengths and shortcomings of NAFTA in the midst of heated negotiations over the treaty’s future. Carla Hills, a U.S. trade negotiator for NAFTA will speak at the event. Other panelists include Michael Young, President, Texas A&M University; Alejandrina Salcedo, Director of Economic Measurement, Banco de Mexico; and Jesus Cañas, Senior Business Economist, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

The event will take place at the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center with a reception at 5 p.m. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. on November 15, 2017.

The event is open to the public. To attend, please register here:
