On the Cover

For decades, the trade relationship between Canada, Mexico and the United States has been the most prosperous in the world. Central to that relationship is the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). No state knows this better than Michigan. Nearly three-fourths of Michigan’s export industry, or 65 percent, are bought by Mexican and Canadian companies. Featuring Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the cover, the March/April 2018 edition of the Detroiter explores the economic impact of NAFTA on the automotive, agriculture, health care, and technology industries in Michigan and provides an update on the Gordie Howe International Bridge construction.

  • Prosperity Partner: Building the Canadian Relationship

    Canada’s ambassador to the United States, David MacNaughton, is perhaps his country’s most important envoy on the world stage. In a time that is critical to the economic growth of both countries, MacNaughton’s political and business-savvy expertise bodes well as the chief voice for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Washington, D.C. The Detroiter recently interviewed MacNaughton, who will attend the 2018 Mackinac Policy Conference, on how the prime minister and his administration are  working to protect and grow businesses and jobs on both sides of the border, particularly in Michigan — Canada’s top trade partner — and the implications for Michigan and Canada under a revised North American Free Trade Agreement.

  • Free Trade 101: Breaking Down NAFTA

    By one straightforward measurement, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has been an unequivocal success. The threeparty deal between the United States, Canada and Mexico — which removed tariffs on most cross-border commerce and aimed to create a continental trading bloc capable of competing with the European Union — has led to increased trade. Since its inception in 1994, goods sold across NAFTA borders have tripled, to the tune of more than $1 trillion annually.

  • Why NAFTA Matters to Business

    With thousands of American companies facing potential economic impacts if the United States renegotiates or withdraws from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is aggressively working to get them involved in speaking out on behalf of the trade deal.

  • Clashing Over Commerce: NAFTA’s Uphill Battle

    Renegotiating a 2,000-page trade deal that has been in effect for 24 years and substantially transformed the economies of each participating country is no small undertaking. It should come as little surprise that the pace of progress through seven rounds of talks on a new North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between Canada, Mexico and the United States has been glacial.

  • NAFTA Talks Threaten Auto Industry Boom

    President Trump made renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) a key objective of his administration. While the automotive industry generally supports updating the 24-year-old agreement, the risk of a U.S. withdrawal remains genuine and tinkering with its fine print could unravel a global supply chain built on the untaxed movement of goods and services across borders.
