Understanding the Trade Implications of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA)

Oct 16, 2018 14:00

Webcast Overview:

On Sunday, September 30, it was announced that the United States, Canada, and Mexico reached a deal for significant revamping of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) after more than a year of negotiations. NAFTA was originally passed in 1994.

Many of the provisions will not start until 2020, as each country’s legislatures must approve it, which is expected to take months. A formal vote in the U.S. Congress won’t be held until 2019. If the new deal is adopted by all three countries, the North American Free Trade Agreement will give way to the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

Many companies may be interested to know how this may affect their company’s business (e.g. supply chain, manufacturing, and sales). To help understand the potential impact, KPMG LLP’s Trade & Customs professionals are hosted an insightful one-hour Webcast. This important discussion covered:

  • Highlight and explain the most impactful changes of the USMCA
  • Examples of how to apply the new USMCA Rules of Origin for selected industries
  • Potential business processes to consider as companies prepare for implementation
  • Discussion on how other companies are preparing, including potentially important automation considerations

This Webcast will be of greatest interest to import and export compliance and trade professionals and executives who are considering how to strategically plan for what’s ahead.
