PODCAST: Trade experts weigh in on the future of NAFTA

Last week, Automotive News held a lively discussion on NAFTA with three automotive trade experts at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel in Detroit.

Among the things we discussed: Who stands to lose the most if NAFTA falls? Does a unified voice on NAFTA exist? And if not, who should lead the charge?

Our panelists were:

• Flavio Volpe, President of Canada’s Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association

• Kellie Meiman, Managing Partner at McLarty Associates, and formerly with the Office of the United States Trade Representative

• Emilio Cadena, President & CEO of Mexico’s Grupo Prodensa.
