Ready or not: The USMCA is coming to replace NAFTA
- April 29, 2020
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is out, and USMCA is on the way. After almost 18 months of negotiations and after its signing on January 2020, the United States- Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is expected to enter effect by the end of 2020. This new agreement will replace the 26-year-old NAFTA and bring with it a renewed feeling of certainty for companies looking to invest in North America.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss the global importance of North America as a trade region and the impact this agreement will have on global trade. Participants can expect to learn about updates on the chapters and industries modified or added in the agreement, and the major changes will affect many industries. Finally, we’ll discuss implementation operations and how to prepare for the right amount of compliance and oversight to avoid potential liabilities.
