Governments praised for agreement on New International Trade CrossingWritten by Dan Comand Tuesday, 26 June 2012 21:48
The President of the Association of International Automobile Manufacturers of Canada (AIAMC) praised today's announcement by Prime Minister Harper and Michigan Governor, Rick Snyder, that an agreement had been reached to move forward and build a second crossing over the Detroit River.
"This project has been a long time coming and is overdue," said David Adams, President of the Association of International Automobile Manufacturers of Canada (AIAMC). "Because of the significant volume of the nation's trade that flows through the Detroit-Windsor trade corridor, along with the forecasted doubling in truck traffic over the next couple of decades, a new crossing is essential," added Adams.
"Our own members rely on this gateway for tens of thousands of vehicles to meet the needs of Canadian consumers, along with significant quantities of automotive parts for Canadian operations," said Adams
