SEMINAR: How Will the USMCA Affect North American Trade?

Friday, July 26, 2019
Paradigm Center

The Mentor International Trade Initiative 2019 Seminar Series continues with this timely seminar addressing how the pending USMCA agreement could affect North American trade.

The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is slated to replace the 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) pending approval by the legislatures of the participating countries.

In general, USMCA will affect country-of-origin rules in the automobile industry, intellectual property protections, and digital trade. In addition, it will include labor and environmental provisions, and allow US farmers additional access to the Canadian dairy market.

This workshop will address changes that may impact your business and will also provide an overview on principal documents required for export to Canada and Mexico, and to allow companies to streamline their internal processes, simplify the export process, and increase profits.

Who Should Attend: Shipping Department Personnel, Import & Export Managers, Sales and International Marketing Managers, Customer Service Staff, Purchasing, Logistics Specialists and others involved with International Trade Documentation and/or Compliance responsibilities.
