USMCA at Signing:
The Implications for Consumers and the Road Ahead for Congress 

Tuesday, November 27, 2018 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. (EST)

Lunch will be served at 1:00 p.m. 

After over a year of negotiations, all eyes will soon be on the November 30 signing of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) in Argentina. The signing is a critical moment to double-down on discussing the fate of new deal given the results of the midterm elections and analyzing its consumer implications. 

What are the immediate and longer term consequences for US and North American consumers? How might businesses adjust to the new deal? With a new Congress in January, what does the road ahead look like for USMCA ratification?    

In partnership with POLITICO, join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center and its Global Business and Economics Program on Tuesday, November 27 from 1:30pm to 2:30pm (EST) for a lunch discussion on USMCA just days before its signing. Lunch will be served beginning at 1:00pm.

Location: Atlantic Council Headquarters, 1030 15th Street NW, 12th Floor Washington, DC 20005.
