Standing Commission on North American Prosperity formed

The website of the Standing Commission on North American Prosperity states that it “is an united effort of distinguished individuals from Mexico, Canada and the USA to provide sound economic and social policy guidance to the political leaders of the three countries for the  prosperity of all peoples of North America.”

It notes, ” In the aftermath of NAFTA and the SPP initiatives, a vacuum presently exists in developing a vision for North American prosperity. The lack of such a vision jeopardizes previous achievements in building strong economic ties across North America made during the past 15 years.”

It also notes, “The Inaugural Summit of the Standing Commission on North American Prosperity will be held at Centro Fox in Leon, Mexico March 27-28, 2009  at CentroFox, with President and Mrs. Vicente Fox as hosts.”

The Commission’s second meeting took place on May 11-12, 2009 in Atlanta, Georgia. The agenda for that meeting and some of the participants are noted at http://www.usmcocse.org/summit.html.

“The Commission will meet 3 times a year and will provide ‘A North American Prosperity’ White paper to the leaders of the three countries upon conclusion of each session. The Commission will be composed of up to 200 members from the 3 countries. The Commission will be governed by a Board of Trustees of 10 members per country and an Executive Committee of 2 members per country.”
