Beyond NAFTA: Raising Cross-Border Competitivenes

Beyond NAFTA: Raising Cross-Border Competitivenes

Council on Foreign Relations - November 10, 2010

Experts forecast the developments of U.S.-Mexico relations as a result of the new U.S. Congress, the need for Mexico to increase foreign direct investment in the face of investor insecurity caused by violence and organized crime.

This session was part of a CFR symposium, 200 Years of U.S.-Mexico Relations: Challenges for the 21st Century, which was made possible through generous support from the Consulate General of Mexico in New York, the Mexican Cultural Institute of New York, and CFR’s Civil Society, Markets, and Democracy Initiative.
