Biden signs order to strengthen supply chains
President Biden signed an executive order aimed at reducing the United States’ dependence on products manufactured abroad, especially during a national emergency, after a bipartisan meeting with lawmakers.
The Vice President and I had a very productive meeting with a bipartisan group of Senators and Members of Parliament to address an issue that concerns both our economic security and our national security: the resilience and reliability of our critical supply chains. . This is a critical area where Republicans and Democrats agreed this was one of the best meetings, this is the best meeting I think we’ve had so far, even though we’re only here for five weeks. It was like the good old days. People were actually on the same page. Americans should never face shortages of the goods and services they rely on, whether it’s their cars, prescription drugs, or food from the local grocery store. We should not have to rely on a foreign country, especially one that does not share our interests or values, to protect and provide for our people during a national emergency. This ordinance initiates a long-term review of the industrial bases of six sectors of our global economy over the next year. These reviews will identify policy recommendations to 40 members of our supply chain – sorry, to fortify our supply chains at every step and critically to start implementing those recommendations immediately.
