New Single Entity Is Critical To National Security and Expanding Exports

WASHINGTON, D.C., - The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Vice President for International Economic Affairs Frank Vargo issued a statement today following National Security Advisor General James Jones' announcement of a new single entity to administer export controls:

"The NAM is pleased with today's announcement to create a new single entity to administer export controls and believes this will better equip the United States to protect national security, strengthen the defense industrial base and double exports over the next five years. However, it is critical that the implementation of this new entity include a workable transition plan as well as completion of phases one and two of the Administration's reform initiative. The NAM was alone in advocating for a new independent entity to administer export controls as part of our "Blueprint for Building a 21st Century Export Regime."

Manufacturers also are encouraged that the Administration is moving forward on phases one and two, which include the creation of new control criteria, licensing processes and control lists. We look forward to continuing to work with the Administration and Congress on ways to make additional improvements to enhance national security and expand our exports."
