Vice President, Global Innovation Policy
Information Technology & Innovation Foundation
"Designing an Intelligent U.S. Manufacturing Strategy"
ITIF VP, Global Innovation Policy Stephen Ezell will discuss insights from a forthcoming ITIF report on “Designing an Intelligent U.S. Manufacturing Strategy.” Ezell’s remarks will explain why the United States needs a well-conceptualized manufacturing strategy and speak to key policy actions the incoming administration and Congress can take to sustainably revitalize America’s productive economy. Digital and physical infrastructure represent key elements of this agenda, and Ezell will review what should be key components of a Trump digital infrastructure strategy. The discussion will also note what policies America’s competitors are getting right in these areas, and explain what the United States needs to do to keep pace.
