Simon To Speak At Trilateral Border Issues Symposium At Arizona State University

NDN and The New Policy Institute, President and Founder Simon Rosenberg will be speaking at the Tri Lateral Border Issues Conference at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University Tempe, Arizona.

With the recent issuance by the Department of Homeland Security of the Northern Border Strategy a number of border issues have been framed that this symposium will examine in the context of Canada-United States-Mexico trade and security.

The symposium will bring together academics, practitioners, business groups and government officials from the three NAFTA countries to examine and evaluate cross-border trade challenges to the Arizona business community.

Setting the Stage - The Issues

Simon will be speaking on a panel which will examine the three nation’s efforts to work simultaneously on robust programs of border security and international trade in the current context of political transition in the U.S. and Mexico as well as the ongoing and much broader discussions on the Trans Pacific Partnership.
