Auto Makers Support Canada's Decision to Seek a TPP Agreement that is Beneficial for Manufacturing and All Canadians

TORONTO, Nov. 10, 2017 /CNW/ - The Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers' Association (CVMA) is confident that Canada's decision not to rush into or be pressured into signing the Trans Pacific Partnership agreement with the eleven remaining countries (TPP-11) is in the best interest of Canada's auto industry and the nation's economy.

We commend the Canadian government for ensuring that all concerns and issues are considered, including manufacturing, to negotiate an agreement that is beneficial for all Canadians.

"Future North American automotive sector investment hinges in large part on whether the industry can fully participate in and benefit from trade agreements," stated Mark Nantais, CVMA President. "TPP outcomes must address export market access issues to the Asia-Pacific marketplace and recognize Canada's competitiveness as part of the North American trade bloc to support, and not harm, Canadian automotive manufacturers."
