About This Meeting

NAFTA and the U.S.-Mexico trade relationship have been at the top of the headlines in recent months.  The Trump administration has signaled its intention to enter into talks with Mexico and Canada to explore modifications to the agreement, a move that would affect Michigan businesses of all sizes and across many sectors.  Mexico is Michigan’s second largest trade partner, with nearly $12 billion worth of goods exported to Mexico each year.

From automotive supply chains to agricultural trade, Michigan and Mexico are connected in important ways that will be central to the development of new trade policies for the NAFTA region. On March 3, 2017, Mexico’s Economic Secretary, Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal, will provide his country’s perspective on this vital trade relationship and the road ahead for NAFTA.
