CTA’s Shapiro: Industry Riding into 2018 CES after ‘A Good Year’
In a presentation that launched the official run-up to CES 2018, Consumer Technology Association (CTA) CEO and President Gary Shapiro said the U.S. consumer technology industry has had “a good year,” and credited the Trump Administration’s overall pro-business stance with helping to set a mood for job creation.
Shapiro said in remarks delivered during a pre-CES presentation in New York City last week that “40 or our companies have announced major job creation” initiatives. As for CTA’s drive to put technology front and center with the Administration, “we’re pushing that innovation is important and will drive the economy. It should be our national strategy,” he said.
