Statement attributable to Auto Innovators President and CEO John Bozzella:
“We appreciate the administration’s continued focus on this critical supply chain challenge. Leaders from the semiconductor and automotive industries are working diligently to resolve the global chip shortage as quickly and efficiently as possible and are working to strengthen transparency and resiliency in the automotive semiconductor supply chain. Today’s discussion was an important opportunity to continue efforts to improve the automotive semiconductor supply chain and set the foundation for mid- and long-term capacity solutions.
“The automotive industry is working toward a cleaner, safer and smarter transportation future. A sustained commitment to investing in and building additional domestic semiconductor capacity that meets the current and future needs of the auto industry in the United States is absolutely essential to get there. We look forward to continuing to work with the Biden Administration, Congress other stakeholders to ensure that the auto industry in the United States continues to lead the world in innovation”
