AAPC Statement on the Reimposition of Tariffs on Canadian Aluminum

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. –Governor Matt Blunt, president of American Automotive Policy Council representing American Automakers FCA US LLC, Ford Motor Company, and General Motors Company, today issued the following statement on the reimposition of tariffs on Canadian aluminum:

“American Automakers are deeply concerned with the Trump administration’s decision to reimpose tariffs on Canadian aluminum.  This move will place American Automakers at a competitive disadvantage with our global competitors, while hurting the hundreds of thousands of workers we employ at a time when the industry can least afford it.  Instead, we should let the USMCA’s groundbreaking steel and aluminum requirements achieve their intended effect, rather than reimposing tariffs on key trading partners.”

The American Automotive Policy Council (AAPC) represents American Automakers FCA US LLC, Ford Motor Company and General Motors Company. AAPC is a Washington, D.C. association representing the common public policy interests of its member companies.
