Presidential Proclamation 2018

MANUFACTURING USA

“In December, 2014, Congress passed the Revitalize American Manufacturing and Innovation Act into law, which gave Congressional authorization to the Advanced Manufacturing National Program Office and authorized the Department of Commerce to hold ‘open-topic’ competitions for manufacturing innovation institutes where those topics of highest importance to industry could be proposed.

“Manufacturing USA® is a network of 14 manufacturing institutes. Each institute is a unique public-private partnership, jointly funded by government and private industry, focused on a different advanced manufacturing technology area but working toward the same high-level goal: to secure America’s future through manufacturing innovation, education, and collaboration.”
