Higher standards for origin regulations would increase NAFTA investment

Establishing more strict origin regulations in the NAFTA region would attract more investment to Mexico, U.S. and Canada, estimated Francisco de Rosenzweig, partner of the firm White & Case. He indicated that the goal is to strengthen regional content from Canada, U.S. and Mexico, by increasing regulations of origin. This would serve to attract more investment, develop more local or regional value chain, create employment and strengthening the added value content in the productive processes among Mexico, U.S. and Canada, thus generating a more robust internal market for the three countries.
