WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley released the following statement today welcoming the administration’s 100-day review issued under its Executive Order on America’s Supply Chains:

“The U.S. Chamber commends the administration for a deliberative, evidence-based approach to supply chain review that draws input from across the business community and other stakeholders. The report correctly recognizes that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions, and our policy responses need to be tailored to the different circumstances facing diverse industries.

“We also welcome news that the administration has prioritized resilience, a key principle of risk management. Policies that support diversified sourcing from different countries — especially our allies — will help avert future problems.

“One challenge will be to craft pragmatic, balanced approaches that alleviate barriers to the administration’s goals. For example, it is important to recognize that the administration’s efforts to accelerate the clean energy transition must be accompanied by permitting reforms that enable increased production of critical minerals here in the United States. The business community stands ready to partner with the administration in addressing these obstacles.   

“Looking ahead, it is imperative that we don’t erect new trade barriers that cut the United States off from the huge export opportunities that have long supported American jobs. The U.S. Chamber’s goal is to make the United States the best place in the world to invest, hire, and do business. We look forward to continuing to engage with the administration as it executes these plans and continues its broader review over the months ahead.”
