White House Reports Continued Manufacturing Sector Progress in US

1 min read

WhiteHouseManufacturing in the U.S. under President Barack Obama has continued to progress in terms of job availability and investments in public-private partnerships, the White House said Friday.

National Economic Council Director Jeffrey Zients wrote that several factors have affected the “revitalization” of the manufacturing industry such as POTUS’ National Network for Manufacturing Innovation campaign in 2012 that helped grow exports by 39 percent since 2009 and open 900,000 jobs in manufacturing.

Other developments such as the construction of the Revolutionary Fibers and Textiles Manufacturing Institute sprung from over $600 million in federal investments that assisted the development of fabrics and textiles, the report said.

These textiles can be integrated in firefighter gear and other military uses like lightweighting fabric.
