Sec. 4801. Findings and purpose

-STATUTE-

(a) Findings

The Congress finds that -

(1) efforts to reverse the decline of United States industry

has been hindered by -

(A) a serious erosion in the institutions and policies which

foster United States competitiveness including a lack of high

quality domestic and international economic and scientific data

needed to -

(i) reveal sectoral strengths and weaknesses;

(ii) identify potential new markets and future

technological and economic trends; and

(iii) provide necessary information regarding the

competitive strategies of foreign competitors;

(B) the lack of a coherent and consistent government

competitiveness policy, including policies with respect to -

(i) international trade, finance, and investment,

(ii) research, science, and technology,

(iii) education, labor retraining, and adjustment,

(iv) macroeconomic and budgetary issues,

(v) antitrust and regulation, and

(vi) government procurement;

(2) the United States economy benefits when business, labor,

government, academia, and public interest groups work together

cooperatively;

(3) the decline of United States economic competitiveness

endangers the ability of the United States to maintain the

defense industrial base which is necessary to the national

security of the United States;

(4) the world is moving rapidly toward the creation of an

integrated and interdependent economy, a world economy in which

the policies of one nation have a major impact on other nations;

(5) integrated solutions to such issues as trade and investment

research, science, and technology, education, and labor

retraining and adjustments help the United States compete more

effectively in the world economy; and

(6) government, business, labor, academia, and public interest

groups shall cooperate to develop and coordinate long-range

strategies to help assure the international competitiveness of

the United States economy.

(b) Purpose

It is the purpose of this chapter -

(1) to develop recommendations for long-range strategies for

promoting the international competitiveness of the United States

industries; and

(2) to establish the Competitiveness Policy Council which shall

-

(A) analyze information regarding the competitiveness of

United States industries and business and trade policy;

(B) create an institutional forum where national leaders with

experience and background in business, labor, government,

academia, and public interest activities shall -

(i) identify economic problems inhibiting the

competitiveness of United States agriculture, business, and

industry;

(ii) develop long-term strategies to address such problem;

and

(C) make recommendations on issues crucial to the development

of coordinated competitiveness strategies;

(D) publish analysis in the form of periodic reports and

policy.
