JTC MEXICO 2018
February 14th-24th, 2018
NAFTA - What is the Pulse of Canadian -Mexican Trade Both Now and The Future?
Global Vision has been on the ground promoting the value of a Canada-Mexico free trade deal since the beginning of NAFTA in in 1993. Junior Team Canada (JTC) visited Mexican and U.S.A. business and government policy makers in California, Texas, Monterrey, and Mexico City. JTC has returned to Mexico on several trade missions in various states featuring many trade sectors. But what is the need for NAFTA today? Is Canada a wanted partner?
This February 14-24, 2018 the JTC Trade Ambassadors will put boots on the ground in Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Monterrey to gauge what NAFTA effects for Mexicans and where Mexico -Canada trade relations can lead going forward in these turbulent times. Global Vision will provide the opportunity for the JTC Ambassadors to meet various companies, organizations, and community groups to learn their position on the present trade system and their ideas for on-going trade relationship with Canada.
The Ambassadors with their trade mandates from their communities will strive to make connections, gain market intelligence to share as well as build cultural relationships with communities. We will focus on economic sectors with particular growth potential in the Mexican marketplace such as aerospace, agriculture, education, environmental technology, ICT, mining and natural resources.
Following the mission, JTC 2018 Ambassadors will form a national network and give back by furthering their knowledge in their communities and engaging more Canadian youth in opportunities through Global Vision.
