Contact: Katie Peters
Washington, D.C. — On Tuesday, August 21, Gov. Jack Markell (D-DE) and a panel of distinguished policy and public opinion experts will join the Center for American Progress and the Center for the Next Generation to discuss a new report analyzing workforce investments by China and India and the effects on U.S. competitiveness.
At the event, a new report will be released, which details progress China and India are making to prepare their labor forces to work in high-skill and high-wage sectors of the economy, including recommendations for the United States to respond with more vigorous policy decisions.
Results of a recently commissioned survey will also be publically unveiled, reflecting the American public’s hunger for restoring U.S. leadership and increasing investments in education.
