Freeland touts made in Canada NAFTA approach meet with advisory panel

first_imgOTTAWA – The Canadian automotive industry is anxiously waiting to see if the next round of NAFTA negotiations will provide some clarity on American demands that vehicles must have “substantial” U.S. content to qualify for duty-free movement within North America.Rules of origin — one of the most complicated and contentious issues on the table, particularly when it comes to the auto sector — is on the agenda for the third round which starts Saturday in Ottawa.David MacNaughton, Canada’s ambassador to the U.S., acknowledged Friday that the clock is ticking on the talks overall — and that negotiators won’t be able to take a passive approach if they want the best deal possible.“We do have an opportunity to be a real powerhouse in the world, and keep our citizens prosperous and happy, and we can’t do that simply by playing defence,” MacNaughton said following an event in Banff, Alta.“We’ve got to really iron out some of the difficulties that have emerged, or some of the things that weren’t thought of in 1994, but also look forward 10 years and say, ‘Where we want to be there?’“The one thing that I can absolutely assure you of: I am 100 per cent confident, in terms of these discussions, that there will be some drama before they’re over.”But while Canadian officials had been hopeful the U.S. would finally put some flesh on the bones of its auto-sector position over the course of the five-day session, they say it’s now uncertain whether American negotiators are ready to show their hand.Flavio Volpe, president of the Automobile Parts Manufacturers Association, said everyone in government and industry is ready to spring into action the moment the U.S. tables its position but, in the meantime, they’re all “circling the airport.” He suspects they’ll have to continue circling for some weeks yet.As far as Canadian officials are concerned, automobiles — specifically, the exodus of auto industry jobs and investment to low-wage Mexico — are at the root of President Donald Trump’s threat to rip up the North American Free Trade Agreement. And resolving the problem will be the key to the success, or failure, of efforts to rewrite the trilateral trade pact.Hence, the eagerness to find out precisely what is the American bottom line on rules of origin.“We’re waiting with bated breath, I guess, like our Canadian negotiating team and probably the Mexican negotiating team, as to what the U.S. is actually going to propose,” says Mark Nantais, president of the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers’ Association.U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer opened the first round of negotiations in Washington last month with the aggressive pronouncement that “rules of origin, particularly on autos and auto parts, must require higher NAFTA content and substantial U.S. content.” Moreover, he said there must be a way to verify that content.The U.S. has not gone into any further detail since then. But it’s bound to be controversial when they do.“Trade negotiations are based on the concept of a balance of concessions and the United States explicitly wants an imbalanced result (that favours the U.S.),” says Ted Alden, senior fellow with the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington.“That’s going to be a pretty hard thing for Canada and Mexico to swallow and I’ve never seen a trade negotiation conducted where that was the starting point.”Under the current terms of NAFTA, at least 62.5 per cent of a vehicle’s content must be made in North America to qualify for duty-free access between the U.S., Canada and Mexico — which is already “the highest content requirement of any trade deal we’re aware of,” according to Nantais.Reports in the U.S. suggest the Trump administration wants to raise that to more than 70 per cent and add a requirement that anywhere between 35 and 50 per cent must be made specifically in the United States.Moreover, the U.S. reportedly wants to add steel and electronics, which aren’t currently included, to the list of components whose country of origin must be traced.Automakers on both sides of the border contend the U.S. position would disrupt their fully integrated North American supply chain, add costly red tape and ultimately weaken the North American industry’s competitiveness.And trade experts on both sides of the border are warning that it could backfire.In a paper published Thursday, Scotiabank Economics argues that there is no need to tighten rules of origin for the auto sector; more than 75 per cent of vehicle parts are already made in North America.That could drop, the paper acknowledges, with the rapidly increasing computerization of cars and trucks since the electronic components are primarily produced in China, Japan and Germany. But tightening the NAFTA content requirement wouldn’t necessarily result in those components being made in the U.S.More likely, Scotiabank says automakers would move more production to Mexico or even opt to conduct trade outside NAFTA altogether, preferring to pay the 2.5 per cent tariff on auto imports to the U.S.Dionisio Perez Jacome, Mexico’s ambassador to Canada, warned Friday of precisely such a scenario if the requirement for U.S. content is increased.“We have to look at it very carefully, in order not to have it backfire,” he said.“Certain companies, if we increase it too much, might just opt to import cars directly and pay the 2.5 per cent tariff and we would lose that production. So that is an element that needs to be discussed.”Unifor president Jerry Dias, whose union represents Canadian autoworkers, supports hiking the North American content requirement, but warns it can’t be done in isolation.“Unless you fix the rest of the mess, it’s meaningless,” says Dias, who “absolutely” expects to see more detail on the American position during the next few days.The rest of the mess includes, in his view, more stringent labour standards that would significantly hike wages for Mexican auto and auto parts workers and an increase in the low U.S. and Canadian tariffs on imported vehicles outside of NAFTA.Without those two additional measures, he says more jobs and investment will simply wind up flowing to Mexico or outside North America altogether.— With files from Armina Ligaya in Toronto and Ian Bickis in Banff, Alta.last_img read more

UN moves ahead with interim tsunami earlywarning system for Indian Ocean

Organized by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), the six-day meeting of technical experts in Paris stressed the need for warnings from sophisticated scientific sensors to reach local communities and for the public to be educated to act upon them.The experts welcomed an offer from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre, the only such body in the world at present, and the Japan Meteorological Agency to provide reliable interim tsunami advisory information to authorized contacts in the Indian Ocean countries, pending the establishment of a full-fledged system, which UN officials hope to have up and running by June 2006.“Member States are requested to provide to the IOC their official 24×7 contact information (prime and alternate) for receiving this information by 1 April 2005,” the International Coordination Meeting for the Development of a Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System for the Indian Ocean said in a communiqué last night.Had such a system existed on 26 December, experts believe, scores of thousands of lives might have been saved from the giant waves that killed more than 200,000 people in a dozen Indian Ocean countries, since they would have been given up to several hours to flee to higher ground before the tsunami struck many of the ravaged areas.The system, now existing only for the volcano- and earthquake-prone Pacific Rim, relies on a combination of tremor and tidal gauges, fast data transfer and alarm mechanisms and public education in danger zones.The meeting also noted the need to develop mechanisms for effective coordination of tsunami warning systems for all at-risk regions on a global basis.It stressed several times the need for public education to make the so-called Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning System (IOTWS) effective, declaring that “this requires that tsunami warnings must reach local communities by various means and be understood at all levels, so that people are well-informed and motivated towards safety measures and actions.”It was a message that the Director of the secretariat of the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR), Salvano Briceño, hammered home at the very outset of the meeting. “Many people just think of a high-tech system with ocean sensors and a tsunami nerve centre, but much more is needed,” he said. “If the warnings do not get to the people at risk and into public education and preparedness programmes, they will be ineffective.”The experts agreed that the IOTWS should consist of a coordinated network of national systems and capacities and complement existing warning frameworks, including within a multi-hazard approach where appropriate, and they called on all Member States to provide financial, technical and other kinds of aid. read more

US businesses restock inventories at solid pace in May in anticipation of

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email US businesses restock inventories at solid pace in May in anticipation of sales gains by Christopher S. Rugaber, The Associated Press Posted Jul 15, 2014 8:27 am MDT WASHINGTON – U.S. companies restocked their store shelves and warehouses at a steady pace in May, a sign they expect sales will remain solid in the months ahead.Business stockpiles rose 0.5 per cent in May, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. That was down slightly from a 0.6 per cent gain in the previous month. April’s increase was the highest in six months. Total business sales rose 0.4 per cent, much lower than April’s 0.8 per cent gain.Steady inventory rebuilding can bolster economic growth by increasing demand for manufactured goods and boosting factory production.Economists generally were encouraged by the report.“With two months of accumulating stockpiles, we are on track for inventories to boost growth in the second quarter,” said Tim Quinlan, an economist at Wells Fargo Securities.Still, sales need to remain healthy so that companies aren’t stuck with unwanted inventories.For May, inventories at the wholesale level climbed 0.5 per cent, while inventories held by retailers ticked up just 0.2 per cent. Stockpiles held by manufacturers rose 0.8 per cent.Businesses sharply cut back on restocking in the first three months of the year, a big reason the economy shrank at a 2.9 per cent annual rate. That was the largest contraction since the first quarter of 2009, in the depths of the recession.But since then companies have stepped up their inventory rebuilding. Greater restocking suggests that companies are confident consumer and business spending will grow, and they want to ensure that they have enough goods to meet the demand.A report earlier Tuesday showed that retail sales increased at a tepid pace of just 0.2 per cent in June. But there were also encouraging signs in the report: sales in a category that excludes volatile goods such as autos, gas and building materials increased at a healthy 0.6 per cent pace.More restocking should help the economy resume growing in the April-June quarter. Analysts forecast the economy will expand at a 3 per cent annual rate.Businesses have stepped up hiring this year, which means more Americans will have paychecks to spend, likely boosting growth. Employers have added an average of 230,000 jobs a month in 2014, up from 194,000 last year. read more

Junior Seaus Family Releases Brain Tissue

The family former All-Pro linebacker Junior Seau has donated some of his brain tissue for research amid questions about whether damage from his football career contributed to his decision to commit suicide, officials said today.The San Diego County medical examiner’s office recently released preserved brain tissue to the National Institutes of Health, coroner’s spokeswoman Sarah Gordon said.“We have no information about the type of study that will be done,” she said.The tissue was released at the request of Seau’s family, she added. She declined to disclose whether Seau’s entire brain was released.The 43-year-old former star mostly with the San Diego Chargers shot himself in the chest at his Oceanside home in May, less than 2½ years after ending his Pro Bowl career.Seau’s death echoed last year’s suicide of former Chicago Bearsdefensive back Dave Duerson, who left a note asking for his brain to be studied for signs of brain trauma. That raised anew questions about whether brain damage from repeated concussions on the field lead to long-term problems such as depression.To date, however, no link has been found between Seau’s death and his football days. Although his death was ruled a suicide, a final autopsy report and results of drug-screening tests are pending. read more

The Belgian scored his first home goal since March in United’s 4-1 win against Fulham on Saturday, but Berbatov says he contributes more to the team than just hitting the target.“Why do people concentrate on this [goalscoring drought]?” Berbatov told Sky Sports.“Strikers are more than just goals now.

He is probably going home and saying to himself ‘I cannot believe I didn’t score again, people are going to be on my back.’ How is that going to affect his self-confidence? It is low.“People think he does not want to score, but that is wrong of course.“I like him a lot because he is good on the ball, he is powerful, but he needs team-mates around him who understand his quality, and know how to pass him the ball.“If Lukaku is not as good as others with his first touch, then give him a ball that he can handle.”last_img read more

Multiuse complex coming to East Vancouver

first_imgPlenty of projects for Vancouver’s west side are in the talking stage, but it’s the east side of the city that continues to blossom.The latest evidence is a $22 million retail, apartment and hotel complex approved by the city’s development department this month. Vancouver-based developers Dean Kirkland and Tom Files of Columbia Pacific Leasing and Income Properties expect to break ground this fall on the South 192nd Avenue Plaza and Westridge Lofts, a 4.5-acre complex at the southeast corner of 192nd Avenue and 20th Street.The site is just south of the same developers’ $12 million 192nd Avenue Plaza featuring mixed-use retail buildings, which opened in 2010.The site is convenient to neighborhoods with affluent residents and a growing pool of well-paying businesses.“We chose the 192nd Avenue corridor because of the demographics,” Kirkland said.It is unclear how developers will divide Westridge Lofts’ 110 units between rental units and hotel rooms. The project also will have 21,000 square feet of retail space. It is the third multibuilding complex developed by Kirkland and Files along 192nd Avenue, Clark County’s busiest commercial development corridor.The construction boom is fueled by job growth specific to the area, according to Eric Fuller, a commercial real estate broker with Vancouver-based Eric Fuller & Associates Inc.“You have a major thoroughfare with developable land and a demographic that is prepared to support the development,” he said.The potential consumers will come from corporate newcomers on both sides of the corridor, including Fisher Investments, which now employs 450 people at its 120-acre Camas campus, and PeaceHealth, in the process of moving its Bellevue-based headquarters and administrative staff to east Vancouver. The nonprofit health care company expects its workforce to reach 600 people by 2014.last_img read more

Prospects for DOD to Avoid a Continuing Resolution Begin to Dim

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR It still is possible for Congress to pass both fiscal 2017 spending bills that allocate funding for DOD programs before the end of the fiscal year, but with the window fast closing for lawmakers to complete their work, the Pentagon may be forced to operate under a continuing resolution (CR) starting Oct. 1.The military construction-veterans affairs title is the only spending measure that has cleared both chambers and advanced to a conference committee. But after the House approved the compromise version on a party-line vote, the Senate last week blocked the conference agreement from advancing over Democratic opposition to the portion of the legislation providing emergency funding to address the Zika virus.So far, Senate Democrats have indicated they are not prepared to accept the spending package due to its inadequate level of funding to combat Zika, the spending cuts Republicans used to offset the Zika money and policy provisions they deemed “poison pills.”The Senate possibly could consider and approve the defense spending bill before Congress adjourns July 15 for a seven-week recess. If so, there could be time for the two chambers to reconcile their differences before Oct. 1; the House passed its defense spending bill June 16.Still, to avert a government shutdown, Congress may need to resort to a CR for one or both defense bills, and most of the other spending titles as well. At this point, GOP leaders have not addressed how long a stopgap would last. Some Republicans — and many Democrats — hope to pass a short-term stopgap giving lawmakers until December to craft a year-end omnibus that could be passed during a lame-duck session, reported CQ Roll Call.Other Republicans, though, want a CR to last until next spring to allow the new president an opportunity to weigh in on FY 2017 spending. Another possibility is passing a full-year CR and avoiding any more spending decisions for FY 2017.last_img read more

TrumpKim summit set for 12 June

first_imgUS president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong UnUS president Donald Trump on Thursday announced his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will take place in Singapore on 12 June.”We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!” Trump said in a tweeted announcement.The location and date of the summit — the first ever between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader — were revealed hours after three American prisoners were released by North Korea and arrived back in the United States.Officials said that step removed the last major obstacle to the nuclear-focused summit, providing Trump with tangible evidence that his policy of engagement was reaping rewards.The small Southeast Asian city state of Singapore has long acted as a bridge between the United States and China.The Trump-Kim summit has no precedent in US-North Korean relations. No US president has met with his North Korean counterpart while in office.Despite the optimism of that moment, a deal to limit North Korea’s nuclear programme ultimately failed.A decade on, the nuclear threat with North Korea has only grown, with the country believed to be on the cusp of developing intercontinental ballistic missile that could deliver a nuclear warhead to the continental United States.Trump has vowed that he will not let that happen and has demanded that North Korea give up its nukes.So far the regime has not indicated it is willing to do that. Hardliners are likely to see possession of a nuke as the only guarantee against US-led efforts to topple the regime.Pyongyang has yet to indicate its price for any move toward denuclearization and may yet demand US troops withdraw from South Korea as a quid pro quo.That complex strategic puzzle will be the focus of the 12 June summit between two relatively new and untested leaders.last_img read more

Whats the Scariest Thing About Driverless Cars Hint Its Not the Price

first_img This story originally appeared on PCMag July 1, 2019 Stop me if you’ve had this fantasy: You’re sitting in the front seat of your car as it speeds down a highway, your feet planted on the floor, hands resting in your lap. Maybe soft jazz plays, pausing only so your David Attenborough sound-alike self-driving car can give you your estimated arrival time.But for me, this divine daydream usually ends abruptly and dramatically — my car’s dashboard goes dark and I plow into a semi-trailer, or a hacked AI vehicle sideswipes me, knocking my lateral mirror into a ditch.Apparently, I’m not alone. A PCMag survey on future technology polled 2,016 people and included questions about STEM toys, artificial intelligence, and driverless cars; 45 percent said safety concerns and technology failures were their biggest fears with autonomous vehicles.We hear about driverless cars most often when they crash — and even when it’s unclear whether the driver or AI is to blame, a few fatal accidents are enough to reinforce our worst fears. It’s one thing to trust an AI to curate your workout playlist; it’s another to trust one with your life.Cost and hacking threats took the next spots on the list of concerns at 16 and 15 percent, respectively. While it’s true exorbitant prices still plague the industry (Lidaralone can add more than $75,000 to a car’s sticker price), hacking isn’t as common as you may think. And corporate data misuse (8 percent), infrastructure issues (7 percent), and job loss (7 percent) rounded out the poll. 2 min read This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.
