Welcome to Wichita

Top trade officials from the United States, Canada and Mexico are in Wichita today to discuss doing business under the North American Free Trade Agreement. In the 17 years since NAFTA was ratified, trade has more than doubled among the three countries, though the agreement remains controversial. Canada and Mexico are also the top two export markets for Kansas.

Today’s conference, which is part of the 35th Annual World Trade Week, will provide participants an opportunity to learn about trade prospects and issues and to network with trade officials and companies.
