Dow Chemical CEO Speaks Out for U.S. Manufacturing


10/30/06 - Detroit, MI

 

Andrew N. Liveris, Chairman and CEO of The Dow Chemical Company recently spoke to the Detroit Economic Club on the topic U.S. manufacturing.  In his address, Mr. Liveris emphasized three key points: the importance of manufacturing to the health and vigor of the overall U.S. economy; the forces that threaten U.S. manufacturing; and the far-reaching consequences of a weakened American manufacturing base.

 

He concluded his remarks by saying, "I am reminded sometimes of the observation, said only half in jest, I think, 'that the United States can always be counted on to do the right thing ... once all other possibilities have been exhausted.'

 

Let's hope that this time around, the giant will stir to action sooner rather than later. This country must reaffirm its commitment to a robust manufacturing base, to assure not only the continued health of its economy ... but its continued leadership in the world.  The United States needs manufacturing and the world needs the United States."
