White House Office Hours: Taking Your Questions about the New Report on Investing in Innovation

Last week, the Commerce Department and the White House sent Congress the Administration’s plan on The Competitiveness and Innovative Capacity of the United States, fulfilling an important requirement under the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010 which President Obama signed into law one year ago this month. 

Today, we’re holding a special session of "Office Hours" on Twitter with Rebecca Blank, Acting Deputy Secretary of Commerce and Under Secretary for Economic Affairs (@commercegov), and Aneesh Chopra, United States Chief Technology Officer (@aneeshchopra), to answer your questions about the new report. The report explores the impact of federal support of research, educating our workforce, digital infrastructure for the 21st century, revitalizing manufacturing, and other important topics. 

Have questions on investing in innovation for economic growth and competitiveness? Ask them now using the hashtag #WHChat. Today, Monday, January 9th at 3:30 p.m. EST, we’ll answer your questions live on Twitter. 

Here’s how White House Office Hours work:
