Mexico prepares to offer regional content proposal for autos in NAFTA talks
Mexico will propose regional content criteria for autos at the next round of talks to renegotiate NAFTA, a high-level Mexican official said on Wednesday. “Moving the rule significantly would mean big changes in costs,” he said.
At the latest round of negotiations in Montreal, Canada recommended that bills for engineering, research and development and other high-value work be taken into account when calculating regional content for autos. Mexico confirmed this as “innovative”, and yet Trump’s trade chief rejected it.
