NES Manufacturing

Manufacturing remains a significant driver of economic growth in the United States, generating wealth, jobs, and innovation.

Beyond significant goods exports, the manufacturing sector also supports a diverse and robust services sector, including digital, accounting, financial, legal, logistics, transportation, design, and engineering services.

The United States must continue to recover, grow, and innovate to strengthen our competitiveness and resiliency, and cannot create and sustain long-term economic growth without a vibrant manufacturing sector.

  • Developing supply chain resiliency
  • Strengthening support for manufacturers through trade finance programs
  • Promoting acceptance of international standards
  • Increasing outreach and counseling to manufacturers through programs and partnerships
