Canada and the World, Ep. 5: The NAFTA standoff

By Rachel Ziemba

As Washington negotiations continue on NAFTA, what are the main sticking points for Canada and the US? This episode dives into what has been said publicly and what has likely been discussed behind the scenes — from Chapter 19 to culture to supply management. How do these issues compare and relate to CETA and the TPP? How has uncertainty around the deal impacted markets and sectors such as autos and agriculture? Host Bessma Momani once again brings together three experts to explain what you need to know on the issue.

Rachel Ziemba is an adjunct senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security. Her research focuses on the interlinkages between economics, finance and security issues. She previously served as head of emerging and frontier markets and co-head of research at Roubini Global Economics, a global macro strategy and country risk firm. Before that, Rachel also worked for the Canadian International Development Agency in Cairo, Egypt, and the International Development Research Centre in Ottawa, Canada on development economic issues.
