Full Summary:

A joint Georgia Tech-Council on Competitiveness Report has been published on the "U.S. Manufacturing Competitiveness Initiative: Dialog on Next Generation Supply Networks and Logistics."

This past spring, representatives from industry, labor, government, and academia gathered at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center for the 2012 "U.S. Manufacturing Competitiveness Initiative: Dialog on Next Generation Supply Networks and Logistics," sponsored by Georgia Tech and the Council on Competitiveness.

During the two-day event, representatives shared their perspectives on the current state of U.S. manufacturing, the challenges it faces in terms of global competition, and possible solutions to mitigate those obstacles, specifically in terms of supply networks and advanced logistics.

A joint Georgia Tech-Council on Competitiveness Report has been published that details the forum's findings, and contributes to the Council's National Manufacturing Strategy.  According to the report, manufacturing in the U.S. is growing stronger; however, maintaining and strengthening America‚Äôs competitiveness in the global market will require a tremendous measure of planning, effort, and focused financial investment.
