Join an expert panel hailing from transportation services, foreign government affairs and legal consulting as they discuss the intended renegotiation of - and potential US withdrawal from - the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and its effect on global trade relations.
这个活动是由一群在物流,政府部门所属国际贸易,以及法律事务的翘楚来发表并讨论 - 美国潜在退出-北美自由贸易协定(NAFTA)和全球贸易关系的影响。

Could NAFTA actually collapse, and if so what does this mean for Canada? Given the current uncertainty around NAFTA, what are the potential implications on the Canada-China commercial relationship? And what are the other current trends for foreign investment between Canada and China besides NAFTA?
北美自由贸易协定是否会瓦解?如若如此,这对加拿大意味着什么?鉴于目前围绕着北美自由贸易协定的不确定性,加拿大与中国的贸易关系会受到什么潜在影响?当前,两国间的外商投资形势又会发生什么变化?

Case studies will be shared by the speakers on logistics policies and factory closures in China within the context of changing trade relationships, followed by an in-depth panel discussion and audience question and answer session focusing on the impact such changes will have on Canada-China ties.
当天专家们将会分享一些因为中国物流政策改变为公司带来影响的案例研究,其次会深入的讨论具体议题,并和观众讨论针对这样的变化将对中国加拿大关系的影响。


This event has been organized in association with CN Rail and will be held in English.
本次活动将与CN Rail合作举办,并将以英语举行。
