Statement by John Bozzella, President and CEO of Global Automakers and spokesperson for Here For America
WASHINGTON, D.C., May 17, 2019 – “Negotiated outcomes are always preferable to taxing American consumers and manufacturers, and Here For America companies are pleased that the U.S. and Mexico were able to come to an agreement that did not include tariffs or other restraints on the American economy.
“Existing tariffs and the threat of new tariffs are already slowing manufacturing jobs in America, so it is our hope that the two nations are on a continued path of long-term certainty and stability.”
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.
