On behalf of the more than 97,000 Americans our member companies employ, Global Automakers thanks all of the U.S. Senators and Representatives who supported Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation.
Trade Promotion Authority is an important tool that will facilitate the negotiation of future trade agreements and help set the United States on a course toward sustained economic growth. Open trade and investment policies have encouraged international automakers to put down deep roots in the United States. These companies are driving the growth of the U.S. auto industry through job creation, manufacturing revitalization, and local research, design, sales and finance operations. Today, our members are creating products here for sale locally and around the globe, exporting 480,000 vehicles annually from the United States.
Global Automakers appreciates President Obama’s leadership on this critical issue and looks forward to seeing TPA legislation signed into law as soon as possible.
