March 30: Industrial Policy Speeding Up Reshoring
Finally, at 2 pm EST on the 30th, IMTS and AMT will jointly hold a very timely webinar, titled “Industrial Policy is Accelerating Reshoring: How You Can Benefit!” From just 10,000 jobs a year in 2010 to over 350,000 in 2022, reshoring has grown rapidly. Now, a recent and continuing surge of industrial policy, including the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and the 2022 CHIPS and Science Act, is making a lot of money available for the reshoring of specific products and industries. A trio of experts will discuss these policies, and their effect on reshoring.
“These new laws seek to strengthen U.S. supply chains and have further accelerated the reshoring trend. We will briefly review the reshoring trend and the impact of these laws on reshoring and how manufacturers can best benefit from them. For many companies, the largest opportunities are with the IRA.”
