On Monday, December 9, 2013, “NAFTA At Twenty,” a conference on the twentieth anniversary of the North American Free Trade Agreement, was hosted by the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.
How did NAFTA, which was controversial from its inception, come about? What were its economic and political challenges and opportunities? What has it accomplished for the United States, Mexico, and Canada? What is the future of NAFTA, and how does it relate to the prospective Trans-Pacific Partnership and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership?
Those questions will be addressed at the conference by distinguished scholars and policy makers, including several who were important participants in NAFTA’s creation.
