The focus of this webinar — the final in the series on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) — was the real-world impact of the many changes on enterprises engaged in cross-border trade. These changes range from new requirements for certificates of origin to high de minimis levels for package deliveries to Mexico and Canada. Such rules, if properly implemented, will benefit millions of North American businesses and consumers.
This event was the last in a series of five webinars on the USMCA, co-sponsored by the Center for the United States and Mexico and Haynes and Boone, LLP. Each webinar in the series featured outstanding experts from the United States, Mexico and Canada and provided viewers with up-to-date information on the progress, successes and challenges of putting the USMCA’s provisions into practice. This panel was also organized in collaboration with Deleon Trade LLC. Additional support was provided by Transnational Dispute Management.
