J. A. Green & Co. Applauds the White House’s Recognition of the Need to Address Supply Chain Vulnerabilities
Washington D.C. -- J. A. Green & Company (“J. A. Green & Co.” or the “Company”) applauds the White House’s report on U.S. supply chain vulnerabilities and steps for improvement.
Mandated by Executive Order 14017, “America’s Supply Chains,” the report covers a wide range of issues associated with critical vulnerabilities. These include rare earths, microelectronics, cybersecurity, and America’s continued reliance on China for critical materials.
To address these vulnerabilities, the 250-page report recommends billions in spending for research and development, and fiscal incentives for domestic manufacturers of critical materials such as next-generation battery systems and rare earths.
J. A. Green & Co. Founder and President Jeff Green said the White House’s report “represents another step forward on our nation’s path toward enhancing supply chain security, and a topic of concern we have been covering since I founded the firm over 13 years ago.”
Mr. Green also said, “For too long, our nation has ignored the perils that could come from total reliance on nations such as China for critical materials, particularly rare earths. Now, COVID-19 has made supply chains and associated shortages or vulnerabilities a common theme in the press. Whether we’re talking about cybersecurity risks to an oil pipeline or shortages of semiconductors that make cars function—we're all seeing it and realizing that change is needed now.”
J. A. Green & Co. looks forward to working with companies across the nation who support the American values of domestic manufacturing and secure supply chains for the U.S. defense industrial base.
