A growing national trend is prompting American companies to re-evaluate their sourcing options and consider bringing jobs and economic growth back to America.

The discussion will be moderated by Brian Taff, Anchor/Reporter, 6abc Action News.

The program will also feature a panel discussion with leading regional manufacturers and industry experts who will explore local manufacturing trends and discuss how Greater Philadelphia companies are responding to labor costs and tax incentives, and helping create jobs within the region.
