A non-partisan organization, the Council on Competitiveness aims to increase the United States’ economic prosperity and improve the lives of its citizens. The council is comprised of corporate executives, labor leaders, heads of universities, and directors of national laboratories. Since 1986, the group has worked together as a brain trust, creating initiatives with the goal of spurring America’s competitiveness on an international scale. At the same time, the council works to implement changes in public policy that will further drive the country’s prosperity.
The Council on Competitiveness operates several initiatives with the goal of increasing productivity, raising the American standard of living, and encouraging national leadership in global markets. These initiatives target the manufacturing, energy, and technology sectors.
