Corporate Breakfast Seminar/Continuing Legal Education Program
8:30 – 10:30 am

Since the passage of NAFTA, Japanese employers have made Mexico a significant part of their manufacturing and distribution network. The relationship has been mutually beneficial, supplying Japan with a stable workforce and ease of transport of goods to the United States and, for Mexico, providing a reliable source of employment. This program reviews recent developments in the Mexican economy, political base and legal system that Japanese employers should be aware of, and also discusses labor and employment issues. Topics include: review of maquiladoras; recent NAFTA developments; proposed changes to the Mexico Labor Law; impact of U.S. labor and employment issues; and security concerns.

Includes continental breakfast.
