Steel, or the Real Deal

March 20, 4:00-5:30PM

The NAFTA Renegotiations and Transatlantic Interests

While attention has been focused on the U.S. Administration’s investigations into the national security implications of steel and aluminum imports and other trade defense actions, U.S., German, and broader European economic interests will be engaged to a greater degree by the outcome of the renegotiations of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Please join us for this transatlantic discussion on the outlook for U.S. trade strategy, which will draw on this op-ed in the Wall Street Journal that is based on a recent ECIPE report on the role of NAFTA in boosting economic growth and rebalancing U.S. trade relations.

Tuesday, March 20
4:00 – 5:30 pm


Frank Lavin, CEO, Export Now and former U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade
Fredrik Erixon, Director, European Centre for International Political Economy (ECIPE)
Freya Lemcke, Vice President, Representative of German Industry and Trade

Please RSVP by March 19 to Elizabeth Caruth at, who can also answer any questions you may have about the event.
