According to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative in the Executive Office of the President (www.ustr.gov): "On January 1, 1994, the North American Free Trade Agreement between the United States, Canada, and Mexico (NAFTA) entered into force. All remaining duties and quantitative restrictions were eliminated, as scheduled, on January 1, 2008. NAFTA created the world's largest free trade area, which now links 444 million people producing $17 trillion worth of goods and services. Trade between the United States and its NAFTA partners has soared since the agreement entered into force." Yet, in spite of all the unquestionable successes of NAFTA, there are forces in the United States who oppose this agreement and claim that it is responsible for many businesses closing and jobs lost. Broadcasting live from Chicago on October 13, 2009 at 2:00 pm EST (1:00 pm CDT), Biz Talk With Josh host, Joshua Smith, will bring together two experts on international trade to discuss NAFTA and its impact on small business.
