CABA To Testify before the USTR about NAFTA Renegotiation
After triggering the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement on May 16, 2017, the United States initiated a public consultation process through its Trade Representative seeking input on the direction, focus, and content of the NAFTA negotiations. As part of that process, the U.S. Trade Representative invited interested persons to submit comments and/or oral testimony at a public hearing on matters relevant to the modernization of NAFTA. On June 12, CABA provided written notification of its intention to testify at the public consultation hearing and a summary of its intended testimony. Consistent with its mission, CABA is focusing its submissions on the ways in which the NAFTA renegotiations offer an opportunity to stimulate and reduce barriers to bilateral trade by harmonizing cross-border legal regimes and facilitating cross-border legal practice.
