Cleveland Council on World Affairs Presents: A Foreign Policy Breakfast 

Join CCWA as we host the Honorable François-Philippe Champagne, Canada’s Minister of International Trade for a presentation on the future of the North American Free Trade  Agreement (NAFTA).

From the outset of the talks on the modernization of NAFTA, Canada’s approach has been to propose ideas and solutions that will benefit businesses and workers in all three countries. Technology, business and society have evolved in North America over the past 24 years, and that needs to be reflected in a modernized NAFTA. The Honorable François-Philippe Champagne, Canada’s Minister of International Trade, will discuss the importance of making North America the most competitive, modern and integrated marketplace, better able to compete and win on the world stage.

Speaker: The Honorable François-Philippe Champagne
