US President Joe Biden will sign a series of executive orders on Monday to promote "Made in America" products and strengthen supply chains, senior officials said, asserting that the new administration remains committed to working with partners and allies to modernise international trade rules.
Prominent among the chief orders include a strict enforcement of procuring products made inside the country by federal agencies. This is often very significant as long as contracting alone accounts for nearly USD 600 billion in federal spending.
Biden is taking action to reset the US government's longstanding approach to domestic preferences to make an approach which will remain durable for years to return and grow quality, union jobs, consistent with a senior administration official.
It is long overdue that the United States government utilises the complete force of current domestic preferences to support America's workers and businesses, strengthening the economy, workers, and communities across the country, the official said.
The President's Executive Order establishes the goals and standards necessary to use federal purchasing, and other sorts of federal assistance with domestic preference requirements, as how to proactively invest in American industry so it can still lead within the global marketplace, the White House said.
For the chief order, Made in America refers to domestic preferences associated with federal procurement, federal grants, and other sorts of federal assistance. Buy American and Buy America refers to the precise statutes that pass those names, it said.
The executive order to be signed by Biden at the White House, directs agencies to shut current loopholes in how domestic content is measured and increases domestic content requirements and appoints a replacement senior leader within the Executive Office of the President responsible for the government's Made in America policy approach.
This order creates a central review of agency waivers of 'Buy American' requirements, fulfilling the president's commitment to clamp down on unnecessary waivers. It also directs the overall Services Administration to publish relevant waivers on a publicly available website.
President will still be a robust advocate for the Jones Act and its mandate that only US-flag vessels carry cargo between US ports, which supports American production and America's workers.
With the signing of the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act, the Jones Act has also been affirmed as a chance to take a position in America's workers because the US builds offshore renewable energy, in line with the President's goals to create a clean energy future in America.Dr. Dhillon Randeep
