Mexico prepares to offer regional content proposal for autos in NAFTA talks
Mexico will make a proposal for regional content requirements for autos at the next round of discussions to renegotiate NAFTA , a high ranking Mexican official explained on Wednesday. “Moving the rule significantly would mean big changes in costs,” he said.
At the latest round of negotiations in Montreal, Canada suggested that bills for engineering, research and development and other high-value function be taken into account when computing regional content for autos. Mexico praised this as “innovative”, although Trump’s trade chief rejected it.
