The Conversation

On Sept. 30, the U.S., Canada and Mexico reached a deal to scrap NAFTA and replace it with a new trade accord, narrowly meeting a self-imposed deadline for consensus. Although U.S. President Donald Trump plans to sign the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement in 60 days, the new accord has a long road ahead as lawmakers in all three countries must still pass it before it goes into effect.

President's Message

David Zilberman
AAEA President

September  2018

I am truly honored and humbled to be President of AAEA and I was encouraged by the successful 2018 AAEA Annual Meeting. Since both the International Association of Agricultural Economists (IAAE) meeting and World Congress of Environmental Economics were earlier this summer, I was worried about conference fatigue and low attendance. But we had more than 1,700 people in attendance, compared with 1,300 at IAAE and 1,200 at the World conference, which is encouraging. I really liked our conference; it was short and sweet, and I always enjoy our reunions and receptions and the sense of community that are presented. We had four excellent plenary speakers, diverse and interesting sessions and posters, and a wonderful 2018 Awards & Fellows Recognition Ceremony, all at a great venue. I want to thank all the people who contributed to the event in both AAEA and EDI. They set a high standard for the future.
