The North American Free Trade Agreement, adopted in 1994, has strengthened commercial relations and the flow of goods among Mexico, the United States and Canada.
After 23 years, discussions are underway to revise the NAFTA agreement. Whatever revisions are made, there will be important implications for the automotive industry. Currently there is uncertainty among the North American countries, and that uncertainty affects companies with cross-border investments and the lawyers and economists who work with them. As is well known, one of the most important industries in the NAFTA is the automotive sector, susceptible to any changes that the renegotiation of the NAFTA may cause.
The implementation of the NAFTA increased the integration of the automotive industry, especially with the suppression of tariffs among the North American countries. The Automotive Industry has seen a significant growth in “El Bajío”, thanks to the efforts made by each of the entities that comprise it (Querétaro, Aguascalientes, Guanajuato, San Luis Potosí, Michoacán and Jalisco), helping increase the production, exportation and internal purchase and sale of goods, which brought prosperity and development to this special region. Some of the automotive companies that in the area are Ford, General Motors Company, Mazda, Toyota, Honda, Volvo, Michelin, Pirelli, American Axle, Faurecia, among others.
There is an extremely important role for the corporate lawyers who offer advice to the companies that belong to the automotive industry in El Bajío. This program will gather leading specialists who can offer cross-cultural perspectives on these important issues, in light of the renegotiation of the NAFTA.
The audience will have the opportunity to be part of a timely, important discussion. And the program will be presented in English and Spanish, with simultaneous interpretation.
