Representative Tom Kirby Will Address The New Administration’s Impact on Georgia Manufacturing

Press Releases ,


To address the new administration's impact on Georgia Manufacturing on a local level, The Georgia Manufacturing Alliance (GMA) will host an Educational Session on January 26, 2017.

With Donald Trump poised to take office on January 20th, Georgia manufacturers are hopeful that his campaign promises will have a tremendous impact on their industry. He has proposed to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure projects, revise tax codes, and to revamp existing overseas trade deals. His idea of limiting trade will hopefully create new jobs and make companies look within the U.S. for manufacturers and to encourage people to buy American made products.

“Georgia is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the shift to bring manufacturing back to the U.S. We are ranked second in the nation for infrastructure and global access and have the critical components needed to attract more manufacturing to our state,” said Jason Moss, CEO of the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance. “Our organization stands ready to help manufacturers take advantage of the new administration’s plans, and to provide unique training opportunities that Georgia manufacturers need.”
