For nearly 10 years the FPAA has been hosting a policy summit, which attracts a wide range of policy makers from all over the United States and Mexico.

USMCA – The U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) promises more collaboration and transparency on key trade issues such as Customs clearances, Sanitary and Phytosanitary rules and certain agriculture inspections. What is this likely to entail? Hear from confirmed speaker Salvador Behar, Mexico’s NAFTA Deputy Chief Negotiator.

“It is very important for us to see the participation of people in the industry, along with regulators and policy makers. Together, at the summit, we create the synergy to put regulations and proposals in motion for the betterment of all,” said FPAA President Lance Jungmeyer.
