Council on Competitiveness Releases Manufacturing Report

10 Dec

Earlier this week the National Association of Manufacturers Blog highlighted a recent report about American manufacturing from the Council on Competitiveness titled “Make: An American Manufacturing Movement”.

Most importantly, it included several policy recommendations on how “to grow the manufacturing sector” such as the following:

  • Congress should require agencies to begin reducing the costs and burdens of current and proposed regulations.
  • Congress and the administration must take action on fiscal reform to achieve $4 trillion in debt reductions by 2021.
  • Congress and the administration should ensure the President’s Export Control Reform Initiative is completed by the end of 2012 and push for improved export control systems.
  • Congress, states, academia, industry and national laboratories should renew efforts to expand STEM education and create opportunities to integrate into the workplace.
