The President of the association representing
international automobile manufacturers in Canada praised local, provincial and federal governments for a recent announcement regarding the investment in new Windsor-Essex Parkway which will link Highway 401 to the proposed new international border crossing.
“There have been numerous studies produced and significant time and human and financial resources expended to get to this point,” noted David Adams, president of the Association of International Automobile Manufacturers of
“All parties are to be commended for their efforts and commitment of $1.6 Billion to put in place a world-class access way to the urgently needed new border crossing which will provide additional capacity and redundancy to improve the efficiency and security of the cross border movement of goods for all industries,” added Adams
“With two of the AIAMC members producing vehicles in Canada and eight related member companies producing vehicles in the United States, which will soon increase to ten, the importance of having an efficient and secure border to foster the two-way trade in auto parts and finished vehicles cannot be overstated.
“I appreciate that this project has been challenging at times for the city of Windsor but we are pleased that this Windsor-Essex Parkway will bring some 12,000 jobs to the Windsor Essex economy which has been hard hit by restructuring within the Canadian automotive industry,” stated Adams.
