Council of the Americas

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.
