Here for America Reacts to U.S.-Japan Trade Talks
WASHINGTON, D.C., September 26, 2018 – Statement by John Bozzella, President and CEO of Global Automakers and spokesperson for Here For America:
“International automakers agree with today’s affirmation by President Trump and Prime Minister Abe on the importance of maintaining a strong, stable, and mutually beneficial trade relationship between the U.S. and Japan. We are pleased that the threat of auto tariffs has been set aside during the negotiations. Tariffs are taxes on consumers and should not be considered now or in the future.”
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.
