CEA Calls on Americans to Innovate23 Jun, 2011 By: Chris Tribbey
The CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association, or CEA, asked Americans June 23 to sign an online petition calling for better wireless broadband technology and the ability for Americans to buy and sell products worldwide without restrictions.
“As we prepare to celebrate our nation’s 235th birthday on July 4, CEA’s Innovation Movement is calling on all Americans to sign our Declaration of Innovation, pledging to return innovation to its rightful place as the center of America’s economic policy,” Gary Shapiro said. “The key priorities of CEA’s Innovation Movement — free trade, skilled immigration, spectrum and lower deficits — are echoed by Democrats and Republicans alike, from President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address to the House Republican Technology Working Group’s 2011 Technology Priorities. The American economy may be struggling, but innovation is our way forward.”
