WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration has completed a 100-day review of supply chains. It will now form a task force to address the bottlenecks in the semiconductor, construction, transportation and agriculture sectors. Biden administration officials say their goal is to increase domestic manufacturing, limit shortages of vital goods and reduce a dependence on geopolitical competitors such as China. The officials spoke before the 250-page review was released Tuesday. They say the goal is to get ahead of crises such as the computer chip shortage that hurt automakers. The report says “more secure and resilient supply chains are essential” to national and economic security.
