Attorney Dan Ujczo Comments on U.S.-Canada Trade in the Great Lakes Region in the World Trade 100

May 15, 2013
Dan Ujczo, Of Counsel in Dickinson Wright’s Columbus office, spoke to the World Trade 100 in the article “A Heritage of Trade”. He states that the world thinks of the Great Lakes region as one big region with no political boundaries or international border. “About one-third of U.S.-Canada trade comes from companies trading within themselves, making the partnership unlike any other in the world,” says Mr. Ujczo.

The article goes on to examine the unique region and steps that are being taken to increase trade, including the New International Trade Crossing that received approval from Canada and the United States earlier this year. The article also discusses the U.S.-Canadian Beyond the Border initiative that established the Regulatory Cooperation Council. According to Mr. Ujczo the hope is that we can cut out regulations that organically pop up but become a barrier and make us less competitive.

Mr. Ujczo specializes in international trade and customs issues with a particular emphasis on Canada-U.S. trade and policy matters. He presently advocates on behalf of the Canadian government on Canada – Ohio issues, as well as collaborates with industry association and public policy experts on matters relating to Canada’s regulatory reform efforts in the energy sector. Mr. Ujczo previously served as an Officer at the Consulate General of Canada-Detroit addressing Canada-US regulatory and border security issues.
