Modernizing NAFTA for a Tech-Centric Economy

When the North American Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was signed in 1994, the internet was in its infancy and companies like Amazon and Facebook didn't exist. Today, rules that govern trade between the US, Mexico and Canada don’t always make sense for companies or consumers. With renegotiation talks underway, we can modernize NAFTA for the 21st century economy. Leaders from small and large US companies will discuss how updating NAFTA can benefit their industries, their customers and the US economy.
