Readout of Secretary Gina Raimondo’s Meeting with the Advisory Committee on Supply Chain Competitiveness (ACSCC)


Today, Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo met with the Advisory Committee on Supply Chain Competitiveness (ACSCC) alongside National Economic Council Chair Brian Deese and Port and Supply Chain Envoy Gen. Stephen Lyons, to discuss the ACSCC’s June 2022 recommendations, convey updates on actions taken to progress the recommendations, and discuss the committee’s work going forward. The ACSCC’s June recommendations provided Secretary Raimondo with advice on how to help the Administration reduce congestion, improve and expand U.S. supply chain infrastructure and workforce, grow critical manufacturing sectors, and foster supply chain digitization.

During the meeting, Secretary Raimondo reaffirmed that the Department of Commerce and the National Economic Council are coordinating the ongoing review of the ACSCC recommendations with other relevant U.S. government agencies. Secretary Raimondo specifically highlighted recommendations related to workforce training, critical minerals and manufacturing, and medical devices.

Participants covered topics including bio manufacturing, workforce development, supply chain data, industrial policy, and freight movement issues, including tracking data and agriculture shipments. The Department also provided updates on policies and actions to help address current supply chain challenges, and to restore critical manufacturing industries, expand U.S. exports and rebuild the U.S. workforce. 

Secretary Raimondo, Mr. Deese, and Gen. Lyons all expressed appreciation for the hard work being done by the ACSCC and look forward to continuing the engagement to ensure the June 2022 recommendations are considered across the federal agencies.
