On December 10, officials from the United States, Mexico, and Canada signed off on a deal that will advance ratification of USMCA in the US Congress. The agreement followed negotiations with Democrats in the US House of Representatives that resulted in modifications to the accord to advance bipartisan support.   

What changed in the agreement after months of negotiations? What is the expected timeline for likely ratification and entry into force? What is the impact on North American supply chains?  

Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center and Baker McKenzie, via conference call on Thursday, December 12, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. (EST) for a conversation on USMCA’s deal with special remarks by Mexico’s Ambassador to the United States, Martha Bárcena.
