Rancho Cucamonga, CA, July 12, 2017 – The IMA®  Inland Empire Chapter is proud to announce our July Technical Meeting. The next meeting will take place on Thursday July 20th, 2017.

This month we welcome Alan Dunn, President of GDI Consulting and Training. Alan will be presenting “How Manufacturing Can Save America’s Economy”.

America’s economy is in serious trouble and only the manufacturing sector can save it! It is clear that America’s competitiveness on the global economic stage is diminishing. This is supported by industrial productivity data, product ramp-up analysis, comparative trade imbalance values, and more.

After 75 years of American GDP growth, and increasing industrial competitiveness, the US now finds it increasingly and unquestionably difficult to compete with re-engineered and emerging economies.

This presentation will address:

• Signs of America’s inability to sustain competitiveness

• Precisely why America is less competitive as a nation and why reversing this trend will be difficult

• The actions government, industry, and citizens must take to reverse these

Devastating trends in US competitiveness
