As the NAFTA (North America Free Trade Agreement) re-negotiations kick-off, many are wondering about the possible implications for North American supply chains.
The fruit and vegetable sector operates within a highly integrated model across North America and represents a significant source of trade between Mexico, Canada and the U.S.
A divisive NAFTA negotiation could disrupt industry trade as uncertainty persists and the threat of retaliatory actions increases. At the same time, a positive NAFTA agenda focused on strengthening supply chains, expediting customs facilitation, and harmonizing regulations will lead to significant benefits for the fruit and vegetable consumer.
To better understand what’s at stake during the negotiation, the Wilson Center Canada Institute and the Canadian Produce Marketing Association will host a reception featuring industry, political insiders, and trade experts for a conversation on the North American fresh produce industry under NAFTA 2.0.
In Washington D.C. at The Wilson Center on September 18, 2017 from 2PM-3:30PM, join Canada Institute director Laura Dawson and others for an expert discussion on the road ahead for fresh produce.
Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. A full list panelist will updated shortly.
