GM & Ford In A Rendezvous With The Trade Officials Of The United States


02/28/2018


Negotiators are dealing with official rules concerning “regional content in cars” besides pushing for a re-negotiation on the “North American Free Trade Agreement”.



The “trade officials” of the United States has met up with two automakers, General Motors (GM) and Ford, revealed two sources. The said meeting took place following the return of a negotiator from “NAFTA talks in Mexico” which dealt with “consultations about rules governing the thorny issue of regional content in cars”.
 
Furthermore, Reuters added that:
“The officials from the U.S. Trade Representative’s office will not meet Fiat Chrysler (FCHA.MI), the two people briefed on the talks said. Fiat Chrysler met USTR officials last week.”
 
When it comes to “rules of origin” in related matters, the negotiator in the U.S. is Jason Bernstein, who “left the Mexican round of talks” for renegotiating the “North American Free Trade Agreement” in consultation with the chief of USTR, Robert Lighthizer on the “auto sector rules”.
