Statement by John Bozzella, President and CEO of Global Automakers and spokesperson for Here For America
Washington, D.C. July 17, 2019 – “Here For America applauds Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for his leadership in bringing a long-stalled protocol amending the current bilateral tax treaty with Japan to the Senate floor. This protocol was signed in January 2013 and finally ratified today by the full Senate. Today’s action will encourage further cross-border investment, increase certainty for businesses and strengthen the economic relationship between our two countries.”
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, an initiative of the ASSOCIATION OF GLOBAL AUTOMAKERS, educates policy makers and the public about the benefits of investments made by international automakers and suppliers in the United States, and fights for open trade and investment policies that do not discriminate, and to insist on a level playing field with respect to business policies, such as tax, labor and workforce development.
