This half-day workshop will analyze the outcomes of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) from the standpoint of changes that have occurred along the US-Mexico border.  Despite the optimism that surrounded the implementation of NAFTA on January 1, 1994, its progress has been slowed by the decision of all three members (Canada, Mexico, and the U.S.) avoid the creation of institutions to guide and support the integration process; the lack of complementary economic reforms to promote competitiveness on Mexico’s part; and the rapid entry of Chinese trade and investment in the NAFTA bloc following China’s 2001 entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO).
