As an advocate for the electronics industry and a voice of its 3,500 member companies, who are spread across the entire electronics supply chain, IPC released its Global Policy Framework for 2015. This framework lays the foundation for IPC’s global advocacy efforts, outlining the top public policy priorities to promote a strong manufacturing economy.
The Global Policy Framework for 2015 targets four broad areas: driving technological innovation and advanced manufacturing; promoting a 21st century economy and workforce; advocating for smart regulation; and supporting science-based environmental protection. Specific issues under these headings included public-private partnerships for manufacturing innovation, tax policy, education and training, and environmental health and safety policy.
In addition to releasing its Global Policy Framework, IPC is also announcing the dates of its major U.S. public policy event of the year, “IMPACT 2015: IPC ON CAPITOL HILL.” This two-day event will take place on April 29 and 30, 2015 in Washington, D.C., giving C-level executives a unique opportunity to interact with senior policymakers and advise them on issues that affect the electronics industry.
