The report, commissioned by the president, is a blueprint for how to get the government’s businesses back on track after a two-year downturn.
It will include recommendations to boost the federal workforce by 100,000 and provide $15 million for job training and training and job creation programs.
But it also proposes giving executives bonuses and other perks if they are “ahead in their progress toward profitability.”
The president has long complained about the slow pace of business recovery, which is often attributed to government inaction on the economy.
The report is the latest indication that the Trump administration is trying to shift priorities away from business investment, a priority of the president during the campaign.
President Trump’s administration has proposed cutting back on hiring, reducing spending and boosting tax breaks to business and business-friendly businesses.
Some of the proposals, like the “ahead business” report, have been criticized by business groups and congressional Republicans, who argue that the incentives to grow would encourage companies to leave the country and be shipped elsewhere.
“It’s the wrong direction for us to go,” Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) said of the report in a press conference last week.
But Trump has already pushed back against criticism, saying in an interview with The Washington Post on Monday that the report is a “very good report” and that he expects Congress will make changes to boost job creation.
“I expect a great deal of job creation, and I believe it will happen,” Trump said.
“I think it’s a very good report.
I think it shows a very strong track record of success, which I think is good for our country.”
In his speech to the Business Roundtable, Trump cited a recent economic report by the Economic Policy Institute showing that business investment increased by 9.9 percent in the first half of this year.
In a conference call with reporters, Trump said he expected the administration would increase the incentives for companies to expand their operations and hire more workers, but that he wanted to see “great” growth for the economy overall.
Businesses are hoping the report will encourage them to hire more employees.
