DETROIT - A day-long seminar will highlight the strategies and practicalities of doing business in Mexico.

'Mexico: Solutions for Growth and Profit' will be held Wednesday, Jan. 25, at the Ritz-Carlton in Dearborn, Mich. It will be presented by Arthur Andersen LLP, Automotive News, Baker McKenzie, Bank of America, Inter American Holdings Co. and Korn/Ferry International.

This highly focused seminar brings together industry leaders and Mexican specialists to analyze the changes to the automotive industry that have been brought about by such legislation as the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Mexican-U.S. Tax Treaty and the Mexican Automotive Decree.

The seminar will cover topics such as:

The future of the auto parts maquiladoras.

The impact of Mexican local-content rules.

Foreign investment rules.

New tax structures.

Implications for human resources needs.

The changing financial environment.

'Mexico is being integrated into the North American automotive sphere at warp speed, and that puts stresses on a lot of companies,' said Peter Brown, editor and associate publisher of Automotive News. 'This conference aims to help suppliers adjust and win in the new automotive world.'

In addition to featuring speakers from the consortium members, the seminar will feature industry leaders such as Tom Stallkamp, vice president of procurement at Chrysler Corp.

The cost is $295. To obtain an invitation or more information, please call Mary Abela of Arthur Andersen at (313) 596-7786.
