Here for America Statement on Signed U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement
WASHINGTON, D.C., September 24, 2018 – Statement by John Bozzella, President and CEO of Global Automakers and spokesperson for Here For America:
“The signing today of a revised U.S.- Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS) is a necessary step toward preserving an important agreement with a key ally and the sixth largest U.S. trading partner. Trade benefits consumers and workers, and agreements like the KORUS are critical, as prosperity advances when trade barriers are reduced.”
Here For America tells the story of international automakers and dealers, 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, directly employing 1.29 million Americans in the auto industry and an additional 7 million indirect workers. 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.
