TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (Reuters) - The United States and Mexico are nearing a deal on the key issue of autos content rules at talks to renew the North American Free Trade Agreement, Mexican and Canadian officials said on Wednesday. Guillermo Malpica, head of the trade and NAFTA office for the Mexican government, said the United States had “started showing more flexibility last week” on autos content and other topics at the negotiations, which have dragged on for almost a year. Speaking to reporters, Malpica said “we are getting close” to an agreement on the so-called autos rules of origin, which dictate how much of a vehicle must be made in the three NAFTA nations to qualify for duty-free status.

Canadian trade negotiator Colin Bird told an auto industry conference in Michigan on Wednesday that NAFTA negotiators are making progress on auto content rules, and endorsed the concept of linking those rules to improving workers’ wages, “Harnessing the power of trade agreements to promote higher wages is the kind of policy all three countries can get behind,” Bird said, Speaking to local media on Tuesday, Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo also suggested that negotiators have made progress on auto salaries, U.S, and Canadian trade unions have complained that more manufacturing has gravitated masonic formal set cufflinks to Mexico due to the country’s low wages..

Mexico balked at the prospect of foreign intervention in salaries, but the debate has shifted, Guajardo said. “Now what we are talking about is that a percentage of what is made in North America would be made in a high-salary zone,” he said. “What does this mean? That clearly, within the component of 100 percent of an automobile made in (the NAFTA zone), a percentage, it could be about 35 to 40 percent, is made in a high-salary zone.”. The Mexican peso spiked 0.2 percent to its strongest level of the day after news of progress on the autos element of talks, before slipping back. Some analysts forecast the peso will appreciate to below 18 per dollar from its current level of 18.6 if there is a deal.

Bird and Malpica said they are optimistic about the possibility of reaching a deal to renew the North American Free Trade Agreement and are hopeful of progress when ministers from Mexico and the United States meet this week, Both officials cautioned that the issues remaining in the talks are challenging, In May, Mexico offered to raise the autos content requirement to 70 percent from a current 62.5 percent, The United States is asking for the threshold to be 75 percent, Malpica also said the United States was still pushing for a sunset clause that would require the treaty to be reopened every five years, Canada and Mexico strongly oppose the masonic formal set cufflinks idea..

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Tesla Inc said on Wednesday that it would raise capital from Asian debt markets to fund the construction of its third “Gigafactory,” which will be located in Shanghai and cost an approximate $2 billion. In the electric vehicle maker’s second-quarter earnings statement, published after the market close, Chief Executive Elon Musk said that he expected much of the car assembly plant to be “funded through local debt.”. On the conference call following the earnings release he said: “For China I think our default plan will be to use essentially a loan from local banks in China and fund the (Gigafactory) in Shanghai with local debt.”.

The carmaker said in July that it had agreed with the Chinese government to manufacture vehicles in Shanghai, the first of its so-called Gigafactories to be built outside of the United States, The capital expenditure cost of Gigafactory 3 masonic formal set cufflinks is estimated to be $2 billion, Musk said on the conference call, Tesla will need to raise debt because manufacturing challenges have left the company with a shortage of cash, Analysts said they believed Musk is turning to Asian markets because it is unlikely he would have been able to secure the sort of favorable terms from U.S, bond investors he did for his $1.8 billion junk bond, issued in 2017 with a 5.3 percent coupon..

“Given the Chinese new energy vehicle laws in place, I would expect the terms of the debt to promote an electric vehicle factory and battery factory to be more accommodating than the U.S. markets right now,” said Jeffrey Osborne, managing director, sustainable energy and industrial technology at Cowen Inc. Tesla has been burning cash as manufacturing problems have been thwarting its ability to meet production targets for its Model 3 sedan. The company on Wednesday said it would build up to 55,000 Model 3s in the current quarter at a positive gross margin, buoying hopes that it may meet its goal of profitability and positive cash flow in 2018.

Tesla ended the second quarter with $2.78 billion in cash after spending $610 million in capital expenses, while its negative free masonic formal set cufflinks cash flow narrowed, Vehicles produced at Gigafactory 3 would enable Tesla to meet Chinese demand, said Musk in a letter to investors on Wednesday, The first cars are expected to roll off the production line in about three years, with construction beginning in the “next few quarters.”, Initial investment will not start in any significant way until 2019, he added..
