Here’s a summary of the webinar and the speaker info: 


What to expect from USMCA?




On January 29. 2020, President Trump signed into law a new NAFTA called the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).  Mexico had earlier approved the updated NAFTA and the Canada just ratified it on March 13, 2020.  So what’s next for North American trade?


USMCA provides important updates to modernize the quarter century old NAFTA, providing rules for e-commerce and digital trade, raised de minimis for Canada and Mexico, state of the art customs processes and stronger protections for intellectual property.  It also contains complex rules of origin for autos and an unprecedented labor enforcement provision called a “rapid-response mechanism” to ensure Mexican compliance with the new labor provisions.


Our speakers will address what regulatory changes and new enforcement to expect and what it will mean for customs brokers and their clients. Attend this webinar to find out!
