The article published by CBC on 18th September (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/windsor/trans-pacific-partnership-harper-says-auto-industry-won-t-like-it-all-1.3233779) states that According to Leader Stephen Harper, the Canadian auto industry may not be happy with all the elements of the TPP.
The TPP will allow Japanese companies to export cars to North America with substantially less North American content than currently required. Canada and Mexico are angry that the United States wants to let Japan export cars to North America with substantial content from non-TPP nations. This could make Canadian and Mexican autos too expensive.
Harper doesn’t want to shut his global supply chains for auto industry and wants to get the best deal as possible for the auto industry.
Negotiations are going to occur at the end of this month, and we will learn more about this issue after the next round of negotiations.
Will the Canadian Auto industry make compromises for opening their auto industry to the world? Or, will they refuse this deal?
