NAAMIC Workshop IV: Contemporary Drivers of Integration


The 2007 workshop places emphasis on three contemporary agrifood drivers of market integration that will have a major impact on the future direction of NAFTA and on developments in the broader Western Hemisphere. These drivers include:

  • Using agricultural resources for the production of biofuels.
  • Evolving cross-border agrifood supply chains.
  • Developing World Trade Organization influences.
