Policies to Improve the Competitiveness of US Manufacturing

The US manufacturing sector has long provided economic benefits to the nation in terms of job creation, innovation, and value chains. But 21st century trends—in globalization and automation—have led some to question its capacity to continue in this role. 

An upcoming conference will bring together leading thinkers to identify and discuss policies that will enable domestic manufacturing to remain internationally competitive long into the future. 

Organizers: The Manufacturing Policy Initiative at Indiana University and the Hudson Institute

Date: Friday, April 17, 2020, from 9 am to 3:30 pm.

Location: The Hudson Institute, Washington, DC

Tom Duesterberg, former executive director, Aspen Institute's Manufacturing and Society in the 21st Century; cofounder, Manufacturing Policy Initiative, addresses our 2016 conference.
