The just-announced United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) that is proposed to replace NAFTA will dramatically change the enforcement of rules promising fair government treatment of North American investors. If USMCA is implemented, investor-state arbitration to enforce key investor protections will be eliminated for U.S.-Canada investors and significantly restricted for U.S.-Mexico investors. Sidley and the American Society of International Law invite you to a robust discussion about the changes, what motivated them, and what they will mean for North American investors and the future investment treaties of all three countries.

Marinn Carlson, International Arbitration Practice Co-Chair, Sidley
Shaun Donnelly, Vice President Investment and Financial Services, U.S. Council for International Business
