The Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions at Arizona State University, the School of Global Studies at Universidad Anáhuac México, and the School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary, in association with The Wilson Center in Washington D.C. are proud to host the Sixth Annual North American Process Symposium: Economic Coordination and Adaptation.

In an era of a global pandemic, regional trade uncertainty, tensions with China, devastated supply chains, and increased debate on economic nationalism and cooperation, this timely virtual symposium will bring together policymakers, industry leaders and government officials from Canada, Mexico, and the United States to discuss how to strengthen North American competitiveness and security.
Discussions at the previous five symposia have made it clear that business is leading the way to a more integrated and efficient region. This symposium will play a key role in furthering the discussion of how to make North America more competitive and prosperous. The Sixth Annual North American Process Symposium is a unique forum for policymakers, members of the business community, and academics to discuss and develop recommendations for a more competitive and secure North America.

After a panel discussion, attendees can participate in working groups that will develop specific and realistic recommendations for cooperation in trilateral economic coordination and the adaptation of business supply chains. These recommendations will be compiled into policy papers and disseminated to policymakers in all three countries to inform ongoing and future policy decisions about the future of North America.
