Regional Briefing Luncheon: The Shifting Winds of Trade
Archive Uncategorized

Join CIR on Friday, June 7th for our next Regional Briefing Luncheon, where we’ll explore the many shifting winds of global trade. What is the future of the Canada-US trade relationship? Between the US and Mexico? How will Brexit affect European trade relationships? What is really happening between China and the US in terms of trade?

New Mexico, a strategic transcontinental trade route, now faces significant economic risks as international trade tensions continue to mount around the world. Mexico and Canada, in particular, are vital trading partners with the State of New Mexico, but uncertainties with the new US, Mexico, Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA) and unpredictable import tariffs on goods from these countries threaten the growth and economic development of the state.

In a time where shifting trade winds have become a pressing issue, how will New Mexico and the Paso del Norte region, including both Texas and Chihuahua, be affected?

WHO: We’ll hear from an all-star three-person panel, featuring:

  • Douglas George, the Acting Consul General of Canada, based in Dallas, TX.
  • Patrick Schaefer, the Executive Director of the Hunt Institute for Global Competitiveness, at the University of Texas at El Paso.
  • Dr. Manuel Montoya, an Associate Professor of Global Structures and International Management at the University of New Mexico’s Anderson School of Management.

WHEN: Friday, June 7. 11:30am – 1:30pm.

WHERE: Estancia Primera Clubhouse. 450 Avenida Primera S. Santa Fe, 87501
