NAFTA Panel Discussion

Change. We live in a time when change is happening at a pace that has never been seen. This is certainly true for our business and agriculture community. The shifting landscape in our government has created uncertainty and new challenges as we move into 2018. NAFTA (The North American Free Trade Agreement) is no exception.

NAFTA is a treaty between Canada, Mexico and the United States that created the world’s largest free trade agreement. The gross domestic product of its three members is more than $20 trillion. NAFTA is the first time two developed nations signed a trade agreement with an emerging market country.

On January 23, 2017, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to renegotiate NAFTA. What will this mean to business? How will local agriculture be impacted with changes to NAFTA? To assist you in navigating potential changes and understanding what the impact is, Envision Greater Fond du Lac is pleased to bring a panel of local and state experts to discuss what is known, and potentially coming in the year ahead.

Panelists:
- Aaron Stauffacher, Associate Director of Government Affairs, Dairy Business Association
- Brad Schneider, CGBP, Market Development Director - Americas & Australia, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation
- Danielle Compton, LCB, Director - Trace Compliance, Mercury Marine
- Martin Farrell, Professor of Politics and Government, Ripon College
- Senator Dan Feyen, 18th Senate District
