The meeting comes after the President spoke to the press on Nov. 23 about the problems that have come about in the wake of the pandemic. The President told reporters:

"Disruptions related to the pandemic have caused challenges in our supply chain which have sparked concern about shortages and contributed to higher prices.

Moms and dads are worried, asking, 'Will there be enough food we can afford to buy for the holidays? Will we be able to get Christmas presents to the kids on time? And if so, will they cost me an arm and a leg?'

I told you before that we are going to take action on these problems, and that's exactly what we're doing."

The President then outlined the Port Action Plan, which aims to relieve the pressures ports are facing to unload stalled cargo ships, especially on the West Coast in Los Angeles and Long Beach. The three-month effort involves ports switching from operating 40 hours a week to 24/7, as well as sending efforts to ports on the East Coast, like Savannah, Ga., to reduce congestion.
