AAPC Statement on USMCA Breakthrough with Key Congressional Leaders and Administration
Washington, D.C. – Governor Matt Blunt, president of the American Automotive Policy Council, today issued the following statement:
“We are pleased that Democratic leaders in the House and the Trump administration have reached an agreement to support the USMCA, which will pave the way for U.S. congressional passage of this vital trade pact. We are also pleased that our USMCA partners Canada and Mexico appear to agree to the modifications. A strong U.S. economy is dependent upon a strong U.S. auto industry.
“The USMCA allows the U.S. auto industry to remain globally competitive by ensuring vehicles and auto parts are able to move freely across country lines. USTR estimates that the USMCA will incentivize a $23 billion increase in U.S. annual parts sales alone.
“We look forward to reviewing the agreement and urge Congress to leverage this momentum and accelerate passage of the USMCA.”
