AAPC Statement on Senate Passage of USMCA


Washington, D.C. – Governor Matt Blunt, president of the American Automotive Policy Council, today issued the following statement after the Senate passed the USMCA:

“The USMCA will provide certainty and enhanced competitiveness between our North American trade partners.  President Trump and his administration, together with bipartisan leaders in the House and Senate, have created a 21st Century trade agreement that includes vital components to address currency manipulation and the acceptance of vehicles built to U.S. regulatory standards.  This trade agreement will serve as a model for future trade agreements, and help grow the U.S. economy as a whole, especially the auto sector and its manufacturing supply chain.”
