What's Going to Happen to Nafta?

The Northern American Free Trade Agreement is 25 years old, but whether it lives to see another year is an open question.

What's Going to Happen to Nafta?

Nafta came under intense fire from both major candidates during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. But it was candidate Trump - and now President Trump - who was most critical of the treaty. Depending on the day, he has sworn to repeal it, walk away from it, renegotiate it or modernize it. But whatever the Administration ends up doing, Nafta is unlikely to survive in its current form. So what might a Nafta 2.0 look like? On this episode, we get some idea of its future from Alex Koff, partner in the Venable LLP law firm. He offers insights into how changes to the agreement might impact manufacturers, law and consumers. And he discusses how Nafta might be revised to account for technology that didnít exist at the time it was first ratified. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Managing Editor of SupplyChainBrain.

Look for a new episode of the podcast, which can be downloaded or streamed, every Friday on the SupplyChainBrain website and iTunes.
