Construction industry bodies in the US have hailed Joe Biden’s
election victory and urged the coming administration to address the
failures of the Trump administration and honour Biden’s campaign pledges
to renew the country’s infrastructure.

The AGC, which represents construction employers, issued a statement
on 9 November saying it welcomed Biden and newly elected members of
Congress, and looked forward to helping “craft an agenda that is focused
in rebuilding infrastructure and reviving the national economy”.
