CEA, CTIA Congratulate Obama
Two of the top lobbying groups in the tech world this week issued congratulations to President-elect Barack Obama, who defeated Sen. John McCain in the presidential election on Tuesday.
“We congratulate President-elect Obama on his victory and applaud his innovative digital campaign," Gary Shapiro, president/CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association, said in a statement. "At a time of unprecedented challenges to our nation, CEA appreciates the President-elect’s embracing of technology in creating opportunity, growing our economy and creating jobs.”
Shapiro went on to urge the incoming president to support the passage of pending free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea.
