A growing national trend is prompting American companies to re-evaluate their sourcing options and consider bringing jobs and economic growth back to America. Join us to hear from David Muir, “ABC World News” weekend anchor and correspondent for the broadcast’s special “Made in America” reports, as he explores the challenges and benefits of creating and purchasing American-made products. The discussion will be moderated by Brian Taff, Anchor/Reporter, 6abc Action News. The program will also feature a panel discussion with leading regional manufacturers and industry experts who will explore local manufacturing trends and discuss how Greater Philadelphia companies are responding to labor costs and tax incentives, and helping create jobs within the region.
In addition, Select Greater Philadelphia will release its 7th annual Regional Report, which highlights the quality and size of Greater Philadelphia’s diverse workforce. Network with top business executives, policy makers, and civic leaders from throughout the 11-county region as we come together for this major event.
