Alliance Statement on Current U.S. Draft of NAFTA Rules of Origin for Automobiles

Apr

Alliance members support the Administration’s goal of growing U.S. auto manufacturing and jobs.  However, there is a delicate balance that must be struck with auto rules of origin – one that continues to incentivize production in North America versus forgoing the NAFTA benefits and moving production to other low-cost production regions.  The Alliance is concerned that the draft currently being discussed may not achieve the Administration’s goal, and urges the Administration to ensure that a modernized NAFTA continues to strike the right balance.
