In recognition of the tenth anniversary of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), The National Association of Manufacturers, Public Citizen and The Nation will host a debate with participants from Canada, Mexico and the US on the results of NAFTA and the future of trade in the hemisphere.
Taking place in the heart of downtown Miami, just blocks from the FTAA Ministerial meetings and on the heels of what’s expected to be a large anti-FTAA march with associated actions that day, the debate will feature some of the foremost critics and proponents of the NAFTA/FTAA agenda directly debating the very nature of globalization.
