President Bush Creates New Assistant Secretary to Aid Manufacturing Industry

04 Sept 2003

To help address the challenges and job losses facing American manufacturing, President Bush on Monday announced he will appoint an assistant secretary for manufacturing and services position within the Department of Commerce. Bush, in a Labor Day speech in Richfield, Ohio, said the assistant secretary will help address the competitive challenges and opportunities facing the U.S. manufacturing sector.

�I am pleased with the president�s announcement,� said Commerce Secretary Don Evans. �President Bush has made economic growth and job creation a top priority of this administration, and he understands that you can�t address those two priorities without taking a serious look at manufacturing. Manufacturers have always reflected the best of American business, showing resiliency and high productivity. This administration will do all it can to ensure that manufacturers can compete and win in the global economy.�

In March, Evans outlined an aggressive administration agenda to cement the role of manufacturing as a driving force in increasing productivity, growing the economy, and creating jobs.

As part of that agenda, Evans and other Commerce officials have traveled to numerous cities and states across the country to take a comprehensive look at the challenges and opportunities facing American manufacturers.

Evans is expected to develop a report based on these visits and deliver recommendations to President Bush. The report is due later this month.
