Since its inception, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has created a trilateral trade relationship of $1 trillion – a threefold increase since the original agreement was signed.  In 2016, NAFTA countries accounted for roughly 16% of global merchandise trade.  Almost 9 million US jobs depends on trade and investment with Canada.  Yet, as key elections approach for the U.S. and Mexico, business leaders, journalists and citizens continue to monitor NAFTA modernization talks to assess their impact.  How will any changes impact future North American economic growth?  How can journalists better cover trade issues?

We’ll ask these questions and others to Canada’s Ambassador to the United States, David MacNaughton at the Thursday night conference kickoff event at the Embassy of Canada. The 29-year-old building was designed by Arthur Erickson, one of Canada's best-known architects, and is the only embassy located between the U.S. Capitol and the White House. The Embassy is also adjacent to the Newseum.

Join the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism, the Embassy of Canada and SABEW for networking after the program during a reception serving Canadian beer, wine, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.

For security reasons government-issued ID (e.g., a passport or driver's license) is required for entrance to the Embassy.
