Innovation Conference to offer insight on USMCA negotiations

South Texas College will host the seventh annual Binational Innovation Conference, Nov. 1, 2019.

The purpose of this conference is to discuss the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), formally NAFTA, and what that means for the region.

The conference will bring experts from both sides of the border to analyze changes contained in the USMCA, their likely impact, and how best to prepare for them. Conference sessions will address how new rules and norms affect manufacturing, supply-chain formation and continuity, binational trade and border commerce, foreign direct investment, and general regional economic growth and development.

Round table discussions and a speaker panel will also take place. Those interested in registering can do so at https://secure.touchnet.com/C20193_ustores/web/classic/store_main.jsp?STOREID=19
