Vital auto supply line reopening as U.S. manufacturers unveil framework for economic recovery

Late Friday, the Mexican government announced that it would reopen its automotive factories, which it had earlier closed as “non-essential” businesses during the COVID-19 crisis. The news came on the heels of letter sent by over 300 members of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) to Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador warning that shuttered automotive plants and other “essential manufacturing facilities” could imperil the entire North American supply chain.
