About this book


What is the Latin America (LA) perception of NAFTA? Is NAFTA the route to western hemisphere integration? What should be the relationship between NAFTA and the other LA trade arrangements, more specifically, the relation between NAFTA and MERCOSUR? What can LA learn from Canada with respect to having a close trade partnership with the United States? This book provides a Latin American and a Canadian view of western hemisphere integration. There are suggestions in order to achieve a convergence in both perceptions.
