After our event “Texas Factor: Key Variable in the NAFTA Equation,” Ambassador Earl Anthony Wayne wrote an article in the Houston Chronicle in which he states that Texas is the state that would lose the most if the ongoing NAFTA talks go wrong, but could have a lot more to gain if it spoke in favor of a modernized agreement.

Texas-Mexico Center at NAFTA discussion panel

On June 19, the Mission Foods Texas-Mexico Center collaborated on a panel discussion about NAFTA alongside the SMU Tower Center, the Bipartisan Center, the Bush Institute, NASCO and the World Affairs Council. Mission Foods CEO Javier Velez was one of the panelists, bringing insight about how the trade agreement is crucial for the business sector across the three countries on how it has helped transform Mexico into a more competitive country.

Representative Will Hurd, another one of the panelists, mentioned that “Texas must lead the way” in the discussions of a NAFTA 2.0, because it’s a crucial state: what happens in Texas, matters in the rest of the country. Hard to disagree, considering the Texas economy is a $3 billion one – the size of Canada’s.
