AAPC Statement on USMCA Milestone


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Governor Matt Blunt, president of the American Automotive Policy Council, today issued the following statement as the USMCA reached an important milestone with its entry into force:

"American Automakers, FCA US, Ford, and General Motors, have been and remain strong supporters of the USMCA.  The USMCA is a modernized agreement between North American trading partners that will help strengthen the U.S. auto industry and the auto manufacturing supply chain in the global economy.  We are especially pleased the USMCA includes currency manipulation provisions and acceptance of vehicles built to U.S. regulatory standards, which are critical to American Automakers and should be included in all future trade agreements.  The rapid timeline for entry into force of the USMCA will require tremendous efforts from American automakers with close coordination between industry and government to help ensure successful implementation of the agreement.  We look forward to an ongoing dialogue with the Administration and other auto industry stakeholders to ensure the USMCA can achieve its full potential."
