Conversation re:  U.S. Trade with Canada - New Opportunities

Companies of all sizes and sectors across the Bay State are already doing business with Canada—our largest trading partner country. With the USMCA—new NAFTA—now in place, I hope you can join AIM in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada and New England-Canada Business Council for a conversation with Canadian Consul General to New England David Alward and Consulate Investment Officer Carolin McCaffrey. 

Learn about how this new agreement will help increase cross-border trade and collaboration.  Hear about opportunities for Massachusetts companies interested in importing, exporting or investing with Canada.
