Walmart’s Policy Roadmap to Renew U.S. Manufacturing includes 10 policy actions, offering a comprehensive approach to tackling the major barriers that keep companies from manufacturing more consumer goods in the U.S., including tax reform, trade agreements, workforce development and regulatory compliance.
