Constituent Units and Free Trade in the Americas

From 17-21 April 2001, in conjunction with the Conférence de Montréal, the Forum of Federations organized two panel sessions to explore the role played by constituent units in the Americas. The panels were each led by 3-4 practitioners from both federal and non-federal countries in the Americas. Participants had the opportunity to hear about lessons learned in Canada and Mexico, and they discussed the implications of the Fox administratione’s federalism reforms for Canada-Mexico relations. The Forum also sponsored a panel on e-governance and federalism, which examined ways to provide citizens with easy on-line services from all levels of government.
