A New Trade Deal With Mexico and its Impact on Arizona

Law professor David Gantz discusses recent developments in efforts to renegotiate NAFTA.

Arizona 360 invited UA law professor David Gantz to discuss the new trade deal with Mexico. As an expert in international economic law, Gantz helps shed light on the current situation and possible impact on Arizona.

“I think the most significant impact for Arizona was what was not changed,” explained Gantz. “From what I have seen, there are no changes that would disrupt the enormous flow of Mexican fruits and vegetables across the Nogales border, where we have of course huge transportation services, processing, and other major industries. This would be terribly disrupted if this were changed in a new NAFTA, so that I think is a great relief for Arizona.”

Gantz also discusses how the Trump administration is trying to deal with key issues, such as the sunset clause termination and the rules that govern the North American auto and auto-parts industries.
