Andrew Liveris quotes

Mar 20 2017

Behind every statement there's a body of work that has to happen. I would say very important to the U.S. government is job creation in the manufacturing base of America. And if you look at the raw data, America has lost that battle the last three decades. It wants to regain footing. So what the issue is isn't really China-centric. The issue really is U.S.-centric. How do I rekindle manufacturing in the United States? Not by taking it away from somewhere, but rekindling it in the United States.feedback

Think about it this way: America pretty, much since World War 2, has been a consumption economy. In essence, you can import pretty much anything to America and sell it in America in any retail environment or in the channel you want. To invest in America, there hasn't been any incentive to invest other than the market. Every other economy is an investment economy – even Europe has protections around investment. So I would say to you there is a re-calibration going on globalization.feedback

I will tell you this, every time we've had a discussion that is generic, he goes into the specifics. He goes to, Well, in my business, I saw this. Does that relate to you? And obviously his type of business is different than my type of business, but the rules of business are the rules of business, and he speaks business language in our meetings and in our interactions. We complain about financial regulation and all the other things, but in the manufacturing sector, we're carrying, per employee, double the cost of regulations. So that means there's too many regulations.feedback

The digitalization of industrial America means a new industrial policy, and the answer to the question is reskill workers and change the way we supply capability to our school system.feedback

Feb 23 2017

We have supply issues today: We have half a million open STEM jobs that we can't fill. We need to fill them with Americans and we need to do that as a priority. The manufacturing jobs we're talking about are in the value trains all the way from basic manufacturing to advanced manufacturing. We really brought back in very robust conversations, with the CEOs in the room and the president listening very intently and making great comments on the notion that the supply side in STEM and vocational training needs a national systemic fix.feedback

Feb 23 2017 - Mexico

[Trump] is thinking about how to make it fair. He said it is unfair now, tax regimens in one country versus tax regimens in another, and how China and Mexico deals with us. Everyone has a [value-added tax] of some sort. That looms large. Should we put in place a border-adjustment tax, a.k.a. VAT? They're definitely debating and thinking it through, obviously no decisions. Is it a priority? Absolutely.feedback

Feb 23 2017

It was very much a working session today following a month ago when we first met with the president. Needless to say, we in the manufacturing sector, all the CEOs that were here today and in the last meeting, are very encouraged by the pro-business policies of President Trump and his Cabinet. Some of us have said this is the most pro-business administration since the Founding Fathers. There is no question that the language of business is occurring here at the White House.feedback

Feb 23 2017 - Affordable Care Act

My whole sense of this administration in the 30 days of working with them is urgency on the business side. They really want to get the barriers out of the way. If it goes much beyond the fall, I would be staggered. The repeal of [the Affordable Care Act] is probably a higher priority, but tax reform, right up there.feedback

Feb 23 2017 - Federal Reserve

All the CEOs that were here today and in the last meeting are very encouraged by the pro-business policies of President Trumpand his cabinet.feedback

Feb 23 2017

All the CEOs are very encouraged by the pro-business policies of President Trump. Some of us have said this is probably the most pro-business administration since the Founding Fathers.feedback

Jan 26 2017

We're entering '17 with momentum, and if the U.S. economy keeps picking up momentum through the promise of structural reforms that the president is promising and, in fact, already starting to enact with his executive orders, this has to be good for our company. With two-thirds of our R&D and manufacturing presence in this country, as a major exporter, I love the opportunity to sit elbow to elbow with the president and my colleagues and say, Here's the things we're worrying about, here are the things that we have to do to be competitive, here's how to do fair trade.feedback

Jan 26 2017

I think it's an exciting moment for Dow, and, frankly, the country. For sure, when you put two big companies like this together that have been around 300 years between them, the front end of this will result in back-office, nonessential production, R&D, [and] marketing cost-cutting. This is a growth story. We are re-aggregating assets, making our shareholders win from verticals that we're creating ... so we can grow these jobs.feedback

Jan 26 2017

We are seeing early signs of positive economic momentum, with the United States in expansionary mode, driven by the ongoing strength of the consumer and the tailwind of a new incoming administration promising structural reforms.feedback

Jan 23 2017

Look: I would take the president at his word here. He's not going to do anything to harm competitiveness. He's going to actually make us all more competitive.feedback

Jan 23 2017

We listened very carefully and he listened to us about the agenda that this administration has put forward to really revitalize the American manufacturing economy. The conversation honed in on tax, regulatory and trade.feedback

Oct 27 2016

A few months in the context of $30 billion in value creation is nothing in the scheme of things.feedback

Oct 27 2016

We're not just chemicals, right, we're materials. And the materials like packaging films, films that can actually preserve food, in China, those are growing through the roof.feedback

Oct 27 2016

We are gaining time on the other parameter, which is readiness. Synergy readiness, organizational readiness and speed to spinning these three businesses out readiness.feedback

Oct 27 2016

I would agree that there is, in industrial China, in commodity China, in asset-intensive China, there is a slowdown, and there's also a lot of money going into property again. It's not even.feedback
