2011 National Conference & North American Summit

International trade has become a global reality that affects every American business, from small and medium enterprises to large corporations. The smooth flow of legitimate trade and travel across borders is instrumental in creating and maintaining jobs and strengthening the supply chain between states and nations. The North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, is the largest of its kind and represented $918 billion in total goods trade for the U.S. in 2010. In this session, senior officials from the NAFTA countries will discuss the agreement, the challenges and opportunities it represents, and the future of trade in North America.

The transportation systems of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico are tied together in myriad ways and support hundreds of billions of dollars in commerce. Each nation faces its own unique challenges in the years ahead to ensure those systems continue to allow them to remain competitive in the global economy. This session examined how each country is addressing those challenges and what innovative ideas to improve transportation are worth examining elsewhere in North America.
