Full Summary: This two-day, invitation only Forum will bring together U.S. business, labor, academic and government leaders to discuss how innovations in supply chain and logistics infrastructure and services can stimulate the U.S. Manufacturing global competitiveness and growth.

Manufacturing competitiveness is one of the great challenges and opportunities of our time—one that will determine the legacy America bequeaths to its children and grand­children. Jobs, investment, game changing innovations, economic prosperity, improved standards of living and national security depend on the creativity and commitment of our nation to lead a new era of manufacturing at home and abroad.

This Dialogue on the Next Generation Supply Networks and Logistics will examine the opportunities and challenges faced by the supply chain, logistics, and freight transportation industries in helping to enable the U.S. manufacturing industry to have competitive advantage in tomorrow’s competitive landscape. The resulting findings will be incorporated into a joint Georgia Tech -Council on Competitiveness Report and will inform the Council on Competitiveness’s Na­tional Manufacturing Strategy.

Registration is complimentary, but seating is limited. Registrants will be informed within 36 hours if seating is available. Preference will be given to registrants from Council on Competitiveness member organizations.

This event is sponsored by the Council on Competitiveness, U.S. Manufacturing Competitiveness Initiative and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
