North American Works + National Forum
on Trade Policy 2009 Conference

Kauffman Foundation Conference Center

Kansas City

The ‘City of Fountains,’ at the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas rivers, has more rail traffic than any other city in the United States.

November 4–6, 2009, Kauffman Foundation Conference Center, Kansas City, Missouri

Nearly a decade into the 21st Century, perhaps the most perplexing question for business is “Does North America Work?” The concept of a seamless continent with seamless trade and transportation appears once again to be markedly divided along national boundaries. The causes for this fracturing are complicated, the potential answers even more complicated.

The North American Works + National Forum on Trade Policy 2009 Conference in Kansas City brings together experts on trade and transportation from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico to explore this and other pressing issues facing North America.
