​April 9 Briefing to Examine How the New NAFTA Will Impact Suppliers’ Business

Date: April 4, 2019
Many motor vehicle suppliers are likely to be impacted by the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the new NAFTA agreement. When implemented, USMCA will have a profound effect on all levels of the supply chain.
To help suppliers understand agreement’s implications, AASA members are invited to attend the Original Equipment Suppliers Association’s (OESA) Alabama Regional Supplier Briefing on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement on Tuesday, April 9, at the DoubleTree Birmingham Perimeter Park, Birmingham, Ala. AASA and OESA are divisions of MEMA.
Attendees will hear from C.J. Mahoney, deputy U.S. trade representative, Office of the United States Trade Representative, as well as Jason Bernstein, director for customs affairs, and Fred Fischer, director for industry affairs, both with the Office of U.S. Trade Representative, Executive Office of the President. Bernstein and Fischer helped to negotiate the USMCA and will offer their insight into the agreement and answer questions from attendees.
In addition, Leigh Merino, MEMA vice president of regulatory affairs; Karin Muller, director, customs compliance and trade governance, Magna International Inc.; and Steve Gardon, vice president global indirect taxes & customs, Lear Corp., will discuss how suppliers can prepare for the implementation of the USMCA.
Suppliers and trade specialists who have a responsibility to understand trade agreements or whose business is impacted by trade between the United States, Canada and Mexico should plan to attend this session.
Suppliers and industry guests may register here. For registration and program information, contact OESA at 248-952-6401.
