President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order on Friday to help resurrect the U.S. manufacturing sector, his first major policy initiative since taking office in January.
The order directs federal agencies to seek permits for up to 1 million new jobs and create at least 5,000 jobs in the energy sector.
Trump made the order the centerpiece of his first visit to the region since taking the reins of the White House after a turbulent election.
“The American manufacturing economy is not going to be the same if we don’t invest in it,” Trump said in the proclamation.
The president has touted the order as an effort to help revitalize the U and American manufacturing industry, but the order does not address a long-simmering issue that has complicated the recovery in many parts of the U: how to rein in costs.
The manufacturing sector is in crisis.
There’s no denying it, and it’s a problem. If we don�t solve it, it�s going to come back with vengeance.
The president, signing the proclamation, said the industry was struggling to make products in a global marketplace, especially for U..
We have to make them proud.””

We have to make them proud.”
The president’s order aims to create 1 million manufacturing jobs over the next five years.
In the past, manufacturing jobs have been a mainstay of U.K. recovery efforts after the 2008 global financial crisis.
But manufacturing has been under increasing pressure in recent years.
The U.s. economy has contracted, and manufacturing jobs shrank for the first time in more than a decade.
There have been efforts by some economists to push for government intervention, including by calling for more manufacturing jobs in a number of countries.
The Trump administration has been focused on the domestic sector in recent weeks.
At the weekend, Trump said he wants to make America Great Again, a campaign promise that has been repeatedly broken.
