For more than 60 years, international automakers have been a part of the fabric of U.S. automotive manufacturing. Our members are leaders in providing consumer choice, developing technologies that drive the industry forward, and creating abundant workforce opportunities for Americans.
More than two-thirds of the jobs created by international automakers last year were in manufacturing, where every direct manufacturing job supported 6.7 additional American jobs—a demonstrable positive impact in the communities where automakers’ employees live and work.
International automakers strengthen the American economy through our U.S. operations. Our manufacturing impacts millions of Americans and our investments drive the growth of America’s skilled workforce, develop new vehicle technologies, and pave the way for the future.
International trade drives the American economy forward. For decades, international automakers have played a critical role in the global trade ecosystem, which helps create new investments, sustain careers, and provide new opportunities for American workers.
