ECIA which is going to be merger of NEDA and ECA will certainly benefit members of both the communities. But what would be the real benefit to the electronics manufacturing industry for EMS and the OEM companies?

Hi Robin, It makes a tremendous amount of sense to have suppliers and distributors working more closely together. The group will certainly be more powerful as a combined entity, and as such should have a louder voice in Washington. NEDA has traditionally kept a low profile on policy, but there are so many that affect the channel, the participation of distributors can only help focus on the issues that affect everyone throughout the supply chain.
