Summary

The federal government's investment of tax dollars in research and development has provided a positive impact for the nation. The glass industry can benefit from actively participating in a strategy that asks the industry where it sees the greatest potential in the future and offers an environment to work cooperatively in precompetitive R&D opportunities.
