Council of the Americas will hold a discussion on the future of Mexico’s trade policy under the incoming administration of Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO).

Mexico is a global leader in free trade with more Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) than any other country in the world: it has 12 FTAs spanning 46 countries. It is also a member of the Pacific Alliance, NAFTA, TPP, APEC, and the OECD. Will AMLO set a new course for Mexico by emphasizing an inward facing strategy of economic development? Will he take a different stance from the outgoing government on NAFTA negotiations? Join our distinguished group of panelists to discuss the implications of AMLO’s presidency on Mexico's incoming development model and trade agenda.

Speakers:

  • Arturo Sarukhan, President, Sarukhan & Associates LLC; Former Mexican Ambassador to the U.S. @Arturo_Sarukhan
  • Bruce Andrews, Managing Director, Rock Creek Global Advisors; Former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Commerce @bandrewsdc
