President and CEO, Association of Global Automakers, Inc. and Spokesperson for Here for America’s testimony before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, & Pensions Full Committee Hearing “The Impact of Zero Tariffs on U.S. Autoworkers”
“It is important that the U.S., Mexico, and Canada continue to work toward a modernized North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). For the U.S. auto industry, there is no NAFTA without Canada.”
The announcement that the U.S. plans to withdraw from NAFTA is unwelcome news. Terminating NAFTA does not ensure that the U.S. auto industry remains competitive without risking investments, innovation and U.S. jobs.
Here for America tells the story of international automakers, their ever-growing impact on the U.S. economy, and the benefits they provide to local communities. The contributions of international automakers and dealers are integral to the success of today's U.S. auto industry, the most vibrant and competitive auto market in the world.
Here for America is an initiative of the Association of Global Automakers to increase public education about the importance of international automakers to American job creation, economic growth, technological innovation and strong communities.
