The National Security Implications of Withdrawing from NAFTA

  • 214 Massachusetts Avenue Northeast Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)

Going into its 24th year, the evidence clearly demonstrates that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was not only visionary at the time of its inception, but also a proven success. Trade amongst the three countries has increased by over threefold. For every dollar that Mexico exports, 40 percent is U.S. origin. Following the NAFTA’s implementation, Canada and Mexico are the top destinations for U.S. exports. The benefits are plentiful and enjoyed by all parties.

NAFTA is not just an economic success story. In the years since NAFTA’s implementation, U.S. collaboration with Mexico has deepened in all aspects of the bilateral relationship. From working together to combat organized crime, terrorism, and other regional threats, our Mexican counterparts have contributed to keeping America safe. Yet in spite of the high stakes, threats of a U.S. withdrawal from the agreement continue.

Join us for a discussion on the national security repercussions of a NAFTA withdrawal and how a strong NAFTA amplifies the U.S.’s regional agenda.
