Automakers, including General Motors Co. and Ford Motor Co., are hopeful a free trade agreement with currency manipulation stipulations will help grow sales in markets such as Japan, Malaysia and Vietnam.

GM Chief Economist Mustafa Mohatarem said Wednesday that Japan is his biggest worry on getting a deal done.
