ICRIER invited Dr. Wendy Dobson, Professor at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, and Director of its Institute for International Business for a seminar on ‘China’s Impact on NAFTA Economies’.
The focus of the seminar was on China’s emergence as a major economic force–creating both opportunities and risks for business and policy planning for NAFTA economies. The seminar was important in terms of its usefulness for India in understanding how the Chinese have handled and overcome the trade diverting provisions of NAFTA. Dr. Dobson examined issues of trade, investment and the exchange rate regime, as well as China as a source of systemic risk-before discussing implications for Canada and its NAFTA partners.
The seminar was chaired by Mr. Nitin Desai, Honorary Professor, ICRIER.
