Second North American Sustainable Economic Development Summit Trade Regimes of The Americas

Four Seasons Resort & Club Dallas at Las Colinas . August 24, 2015

 

Following our First North American Sustainable Economic Development Summitheld in August of 2014, this year’s event will focus on “Trade Regimes of the Americas.” The way trade is conducted in the Western Hemisphere continues to evolve, and the initiatives of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), continue to bring together the economies of the United States, Mexico, Canada and the region. Now the world’s largest free trade regime, connecting 450 million people, and producing $17 trillion worth of goods and services annually, North America stands to benefit greatly with the potential implementation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and the Trans-Atlantic Partnership, which are currently being debated and negotiated.
