ECIPE Seminar: NAFTA 2.0

September 21 2017
Venue: ECIPE Office, Avenue des Arts 40, 6th floor, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Elena Bryan, Erik van der Marel
Time: 14:30

ECIPE Senior Fellow (and former head of USTR in Brussels) Elena Bryan talks NAFTA renegotiations. Whether it's real or fiction, what are the implications of President Trump's rebalancing act?

After just two round of talks, the NAFTA renegotiation process may have not yielded much results. Nonetheless, NAFTA has not just generated more political tensions than any other initiative in recent years, but also stakeholder interest.

Differences are abound between Canada, Mexico and the US in not just political sensitive areas – like labour standards, dispute settlement; but also in more technical areas like services, rules of origins or e-commerce and copyright.

What are the consequences of President Trump’s rebalancing act on the trade deficit for US trade policy, and subsequently, the rest of the world? What are its internal politics and business inside the DC Beltway? Could President Trump withdraw from NAFTA, and suffer the same fate as TPP12?
