Trade & Competitiveness

Global Automakers' members helped build today’s dynamic American automobile industry. Thanks to investments by our members in the U.S., this dynamism is seen in states like Alabama, California, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia. Our members continue to invest and grow, helping the U.S. maintain its leadership and global competitiveness.

Free Trade Agreements

Global Automakers supports the adoption of free trade policies because they strengthen our industry and enhance consumer choice. The U.S. auto industry today builds over one million more vehicles in America than were manufactured the year before NAFTA took effect.
