Panel of Experts to Address State of U.S.-Canada Trade Relations and Impact on Automotive Industry

7:30 a.m.  Registration/Breakfast

8:15-11:00 a.m.  Presentations

If there has been one thing certain since President Donald Trump has taken office, it is that nothing is certain.  A perfect example is the state of NAFTA.  With the renegotiation of NAFTA, what can we expect going forward for the automotive industry and the economy overall in both the United States and Canada?

Canada and the United States enjoy the longest, deepest, most peaceful and mutually beneficial relationship of any two countries in the world.  The U.S.-Canada trade relationship is the second largest in the world after China, with U.S. goods and services trade with Canada totaling an estimated $627.8 billion in 2016, according to the U.S. Office of Trade Representative.

Hear from industry, government and academic specialists on Canada-U.S. trade relations, specific to the automotive sector.  This will be an insightful and timely examination on a topic that is sure to impact both countries’ automotive industry in the near- and long-term.
