What’s Driving Chinese Investment into the Mexican Automotive Sector?

03/13/2024 at 10:00 AM (EST)
WITA Webinar WITA Online Event

Please join WITA and the Asia Society Policy Institute for a Zoom webinar to look at trends and policy implications for investment into the Mexican automotive sector by Chinese and other foreign firms. These investments are, in part, a response to U.S. trade policies, specifically the China tariffs and USMCA, but also the tax provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act, and the Biden Administration’s efforts to shorten supply chains and bring more manufacturing to North America.

Featured Speakers:

Governor Matt Blunt, President, American Automotive Policy Council

Michael Dunne, CEO, ZoZoGo; author of the upcoming book: Humiliation No More: China’s Master Plan to Dominate Electric Car Markets Worldwide

Ilaria Mazzocco, Senior Fellow, Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics, Center for Strategic and International Studies

Scott Paul, President, Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM); co-author of the paper: Why Chinese Autos Could Be an “Extinction-Level Event” for America’s Auto Industry

Kenneth Smith Ramos, Partner, Agon; former lead Mexican negotiator of the USMCA

Moderator: Wendy Cutler, Vice President and Managing Director, Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) Washington, DC Office; former Acting Deputy United States Trade Representative
