FARM FOUNDATION FORUM TO EXAMINE THE FUTURE OF NAFTA
Source: Farm Foundation Forum news release

Calls to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) have drawn mixed reactions. Further affecting the long-term landscape for trade are the withdrawal from ongoing trade negotiations, and requests to revisit WTO rules.

Some sectors see opportunities in revisiting the United States' approach to trade negotiations, while others--including many agricultural sectors--are worried about the potential loss of markets.

The Future of the North American Free Trade Agreement will be the topic for the Farm Foundation Forum on Tuesday, March 14. Invited to present perspectives on the issue are:
•Bob Stallman, a Texas farmer and former president of the American Farm Bureau Federation;
•Melissa San Miguel, Senior Director of Global Strategies for the Grocery Manufacturers Association; and
•Linda Dempsey, Vice President of International Economic Affairs with the National Association of Manufacturers.

Farm Foundation President Constance Cullman will moderate the discussion. After comments by the panelists, the floor will be opened for questions and discussion.

The Forum will be 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. EDT in the Holeman Lounge of the National Press Club, 529 14th St. NW, Washington, D.C. A free, live audiocast will also be available.
