Washington D.C. – National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) President Jake Colvin today issued a statement following the enactment of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework (BIF):
“We applaud Congress and the Administration for strengthening our country’s infrastructure. Improving our country’s roads, bridges, ports and digital infrastructure will make American workers and companies of all sizes more competitive in the global economy.
“As this work begins and new initiatives take shape, the United States has an opportunity to send a signal to the world that our country is open for business and ensure that America’s workers and businesses can compete on a level playing field globally.
“We urge Congress and the Administration to ensure that U.S. procurement policies and incentives comply with the international rules and obligations that the United States helped write.”
