Statement attributable to Alliance Interim President and CEO David Schwietert:
“Since the Trump administration first announced its intent to modernize our existing trade agreement with Canada and Mexico, the Auto Alliance has reiterated the absolute necessity of preserving the integrated North American automotive supply chain and maintaining the auto industry’s global competitiveness. Likewise, it is critical to remove tariffs and trade barriers that hinder economic growth. That’s why we’re pleased Mexico has taken steps to preserve North American competitiveness.
“Now that Mexico has passed USMCA, we look forward to working with the administration and Congress as they consider the trade agreement. Removing trade practices and barriers that hinder job creation will spur economic growth and stability for automakers, suppliers, dealers and, most importantly, consumers.”
