With recent signals out of Washington that progress is being made on NAFTA re-negotiations, the 7th round of talks is set to begin on Sunday, February 25 in Mexico City, Mexico - with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Canada Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland and Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo slated to meet as the round wraps up on March 5.
Our speaker will be John Murphy – the Senior Vice President for International Affairs at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Washington’s most influential business advocacy organization. John will be joining us just prior to his departure for Mexico City to participate in the talks.
John Murphy directs the U.S. Chamber’s advocacy relating to international trade and investment policy. Since joining the Chamber in 1999, he has led its successful campaigns to win congressional passage of trade agreements with a dozen nations, including Colombia, Panama, and South Korea in 2011, as well as Trade Promotion Authority in 2015. John also plays a key role in the Chamber’s advocacy for international business priorities before Congress, the Administration, foreign governments, and the World Trade Organization.
Mark your calendar for a conference call with John on Monday, February 26 at 3:30 pm ET on the timeline for NAFTA renegotiations, the emerging contours of the Trump Administration’s strategy, and the implications on trade and the U.S. economy.
