DEC’s Trade Policy & Legislative Affairs Committee Chair & Co-Chair, Carol Colombo and Lea Marquez-Peterson, facilitated the discussion. The key topics included an update on NAFTA Negotiations & Impact of NAFTA on Arizona, along with an industry panel discussion  moderated by TPLA Member, Brett Johnson, What Global Trade Means for Arizona Jobs, Growth & Sustained Prosperity.  It was followed by an in-depth question and answer session.
