Global Matters Discussion: NAFTA Lead Negotiators
What better way to discuss the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) than to hear from the three people who led negotiations of the deal?
The Carlson School welcomed Carla Hills, former U.S. trade representative; Jaime Serra Puche, former secretary of trade and industry and former secretary of finance of Mexico; and John Weekes, former chief Canadian negotiator for NAFTA, for a discussion on the future of trade relations in North America in the face of new policies and the changing political climate on March 27 before an overflow crowd in the 3M Auditorium. Distinguished McKnight University Professor in the Department of Economics Tim Kehoe moderated the panel, which was organized and co-hosted by the Heller-Hurwicz Economics Institute and the Carlson Global Institute as part of its Global Matters series.
Attendees also participated with the Global Matters topic of the day on social media.
The trilateral relationship of NAFTA makes for a competitive North American region. You lose that with bilateral FTAs #globalmatters— Mallory Narang (@allonsymallory) March 27, 2017
