“As we’ve watched the U.S. economy reinvent itself to compete in a tougher global environment, it’s become increasingly clear that America’s ability to make things and our ability to innovate are tied closely together. If we want to stay at the front-end of innovation, we have to have production located nearby.
High-end manufacturing… that is, manufacturing that relies on high-tech new processes or that makes new products, is what’s going to keep U.S. manufacturing competitive.”
