Washington, D.C. – The White House on Thursday released reports from seven federal agencies detailing findings of the administration’s year-long investigation into U.S. supply chains. The reports also include strategies to address weaknesses in those supply chains and strengthen American manufacturing.
Alliance for American Manufacturing President Scott Paul said:
“Whether it’s the recent chaos and uncertainty of the pandemic, shipping woes, China turning inward, or now conflict in Europe, the importance of a strong and resilient U.S. manufacturing base is clearer than ever.
“These reports demonstrate that rebuilding domestic manufacturing capabilities and our critical supply chains is not something the private sector can do alone. We’re pleased that the Biden administration has outlined policy actions, including enhanced Buy American policies, to address these vulnerabilities.
“We also urge the administration to proceed expeditiously to implement the Buy American and other domestic content tools provided by Congress in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which will ensure that both government purchases and U.S. infrastructure source from U.S. manufacturing and its workers.”
