The re-negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA 2.0) started on August 16, 2017, in Washington.  This course is designed to provide participants with as-close- real-life-as possible experience of what it would be like to be participating in one of four Working Groups (trade in goods, trade in services, investment and intellectual property rights) in these negotiations.  The course is highly-interactive, using a simulation of a hypothetical Canada-US-Mexico negotiation to provide hands-on experience in how to prepare, conduct and finalize a trade agreement to advance Canada’s commercial interests. The course is designed and delivered by former senior Canadian trade negotiators and diplomats to make the course as practical and “real world” as possible.
