Biden wants to boost American industry, bringing back Trump's favorite slogan
Today, the new US President, Joe Biden, signs a decree giving priority to US companies and products in deals concluded with federal agencies, restoring the slogan favored by his predecessor, Donald Trump, "Made in America."
Senior White House officials said that this text aims to re-launch national production, preserve industrial jobs and increase "investments in the manufacturing and labor sectors with the aim of advancing again in a better way."
Less than a week after taking office, Biden continues to move to pursue the implementation of his priorities through presidential decrees, while his government team has not yet assumed its duties.
The Senate will vote on confirming Janet Yellen as Treasury Secretary, who is supposed to oversee economic projects, including the $ 1900 billion rescue plan to get the country out of the crisis.
The new decree will reduce the odds of circumventing rules that require the federal administration to prioritize purchases of US-manufactured products.
The goal is also to urge federal agencies to close legal loopholes exploited by companies that manufacture only a small portion of the products offered to the government in the United States.
