Amerimold 2019 Update: What You Should Know about Public Policy
This panel will review trade and tariff updates and their impact on mold manufacturing, plastics and die casting markets; and exchange rates and how they affect export/import competitiveness.
Mold manufacturers are consumed by the day-to-day activities of their businesses so much so that they often neglect the outside influences having a major effect on their businesses, namely public policy. And if this past year’s trade policy changes haven’t convinced you to pay attention, maybe this panel presentation will. It is more important than ever for manufacturers to not only be aware but remain informed and engaged about the issues at hand. This panel will review trade and tariff updates and their impact on mold manufacturing, plastics and die casting markets; exchange rates and how they affect export/import competitiveness; what’s happening in work-based learning, apprenticeship programs and government assistance programs; and, the latest on the innovation front, including Smart Factories and their impact on U.S. manufacturing.
