“There’s a common narrative repeated so often that it is sometimes taken as gospel: American businesses are moving good manufacturing jobs overseas. As the CEO of a Maryland company that operates not one, but two robust manufacturing operations right here in the U.S., I know that’s not the case for all U.S. businesses,” writes Peter Bowe of Ellicott Dredges in this recent blog for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“Our company has been able to support the sort of good manufacturing jobs that are so crucial to America’s middle class because we have always actively pursued new markets both here at home,” says Bowe, whose company uses OPIC political risk insurance to support sales of its equipment into challenging markets such as Iraq.
