Supply Chain Resiliency and the Role of Small Manufacturers

The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Tax, and Capital Access will hold a remote hearing titled: “Supply Chain Resiliency and the Role of Small Manufacturers.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 1:00 P.M. on Thursday, April 29, 2021 via the Zoom platform (information to be provided).

The COVID-19 pandemic exposed many weaknesses in the supply chains relied on by small businesses, especially small manufacturers. As the economy continues to recover, Congress must take steps to maximize supply chain resiliency for future economic disruptions. The hearing will allow Members to examine the impact the COVID-19 pandemic had on supply chains for small businesses, especially those in the manufacturing industry. The hearing will also discuss the challenges small manufacturers expect to face in the post-COVID economy and the role of the Small Business Administration’s loan and investment programs.
