IPC Welcomes New White House Office on Trade and Manufacturing Policy

Reading time ( words)

John Mitchell, president and CEO of IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries, issued the following statement on the April 29 Executive Order by President Donald Trump, creating a new White House Office on Trade and Manufacturing Policy:

On behalf of more than 2,100 U.S. member facilities and 800,000 workers across the United States, IPC welcomes the April 29 Executive Order by President Donald Trump creating a new White House Office on Trade and Manufacturing Policy (OTMP).

The United States remains the world leader in advanced manufacturing, but it cannot take its leadership for granted. Other nations are investing massive time and resources in three crucial areas that the U.S. tends to neglect: investing in the infrastructure of innovation; getting serious about education and workforce skills; and taking a balanced approach to trade deals.

As it happens, a delegation of IPC member company executives is in Washington, DC, this week to advocate for policies that will foster the manufacturing skills, jobs, and investments of the future.

We look forward to working with the OTMP and all members of the Administration and Congress to make the United States an even greater place for advancing manufacturing.
