What are the possible impacts of new tariffs or quotas?  Get the new WardsAuto report, NAFTA and the U.S./Mexico Auto Trade: Past, Present & Future

Undoing NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), the free-trade zone between Canada, Mexico and the U.S. created in 1993, was a centerpiece of Donald Trump’s “pro-America” campaign message.

Now, with the Trump administration’s announced intention to renegotiate NAFTA, and to potentially impose a 20% tariff on Mexican imports, the question of whether tariffs are practical or even legal, could soon be tested.

WardsAuto’s special report, NAFTA and the U.S./Mexico Auto Trade: Past, Present and Future, examines the effect NAFTA has had on the automotive industry in both countries and how changes to the agreement could impact the status quo.
