In a video interview for SupplyChainBrain, Doreen M. Edelman, Chair of the firm’s Global Trade & Policy practice, discusses the Biden administration’s “holistic” approach to the Buy America Act, noting that–while the legislation is 70 years old– “this is the first time they are actually looking at changing the content requirements and making a larger differential in the benefit of purchasing domestic over foreign products.” For manufacturers of all commercial products (not just defense), Edelman says, “The companies that are going to be successful are the ones that understand their supply chain. … There is no short cut in doing it.” She continues: “The Biden administration is not trying to make it just U.S.-oriented; [they are saying] we want to work with our best trading partners. If you work with us on national security, as a result, you may get a trade preference. It all goes hand in hand.”
