Webinar: Mexico's Changing Business and Regulatory Environment in the USMCA Era

Mexico is undergoing a series of important economic, political and social changes that are radically transforming the country’s outlook. Some of these developments are the product of policy actions carried out after President Andrés Manuel López Obrador took office at the end of 2018, and others are due to unexpected events such as the Covid-19 public health crisis. Regardless of the source, these changes are profoundly impacting the country, and their consequences will likely linger for years to come. Given that Mexico is both a major destination for American investment and a key commercial ally of the United States — as the ratification of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) affirmed — it is crucial to understand how the regulatory and business environment is changing and what it means for doing business across the border. To speak to these changes and the challenges and opportunities they represent, the Center for the United States and Mexico hosted a webinar where key experts explored the current situation and what to expect in the coming months.

This event was sponsored by the Center for the United States and Mexico and Control Risks. Follow @BakerCtrUSMEX on Twitter and join the conversation online with #BakerMexico.
