Walmart is leading American renewal through its commitment to purchase an additional $250 billion in products made, sourced or grown in the U.S. by 2023. By investing in products that support American jobs, Walmart can play a role in accelerating growth in U.S. manufacturing. By collaborating with suppliers, engaging industry experts, and leveraging our scale, Walmart’s commitment could create up to 1 million new American jobs*.
To underscore Walmart’s commitment, we are hosting our 4th U.S. Manufacturing Summit with the theme of “Investing in American Jobs”. The event will also include another exciting Open Call for new U.S.-made products. This unique event is open to both current and potential suppliers and will be hosted at our corporate offices on June 28, 2016 in Bentonville, Arkansas.
Participants will hear from Walmart leaders, industry experts, government officials and learn why and how U.S. production closest to consumption is good for our customer, our business and our communities. Buyers from Walmart, Sam’s Club and Walmart.com will be on hand to meet one on one with those companies offering new U.S.-made items during our “Open Call”.
