Statement of the Automotive Trade Policy Council on the WTO Doha Round Negotiations

WASHINGTON–(EMWPresswire)–The Automotive Trade Policy Council and its member companies

Chrysler LLC, Ford Motor Company and General Motors Corporation

encourage U.S. negotiators to continue working for a WTO Doha Agreement

that will provide genuine market access for the U.S. auto industry.

While these negotiations are at a difficult stage, we remain hopeful

that an ambitious outcome can be achieved that will serve to strengthen

the global competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers.

From the beginning of the Doha Round, we set out as our goal the

achievement of an Agreement that reduces high tariff barriers we face in

many markets around the world and, more importantly, removes the growing

number of highly discriminatory and unfair non-tariff barriers that many

countries are using to restrict access to their automotive markets.

We have joined with all of the major auto manufacturing associations of

the world in calling for a comprehensive agreement in the Doha Round to

confront and eliminate these damaging non-tariff barriers in the

automobile sector, such as discriminatory taxes and unique regulatory

standards.

Achieving these critical objectives will be the U.S. auto companies

basis for assessing the success and relevance of any WTO Agreement

reached in Geneva.
