International Trade

Chrysler, Ford and GM have supported every major trade agreement negotiation to establish a 21st Century Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade agreement with Australia, Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. AAPC also works to support U.S. trade relationships with other countries around the globe.

The TPP will also provide a high standard free trade agreement model for the Asia-Pacific region, and a solid economic anchor for the United States in Asia to prevent an economic and trade divide in the middle of the Pacific region.

International Trade, and the TPP, will allow the U.S. to build on existing free trade agreements with four of the eight other countries (Australia, Chile, Peru, Singapore) by better coordinating and harmonizing gains already made in prior trade agreements with those nations. The TPP will serve as a substantial step forward by establishing free trade agreements with four new U.S. trade partners (Brunei, Malaysia, New Zealand and Vietnam). Finally, the agreement will allow the nine signatories to establish a model agreement capable of serving as a high-standard, broad-based regional pact.

Americans headed for local car dealers en masse last month, taking advantage of year-end closeouts, sweet leases and inexpensive financing to boost the industry log its strongest sales year since 2007.

Most major automakers, who report sales on Friday, were expected to report gains for the year. But there were signs in December that 2014 could bring more price competition and better deals for consumers as U.S. auto sales growth starts to slow.
