“I don’t have the impression — and yes, there were some things said on the campaign trail . . .that this is an administration that has or wants to have an unhappy relationship with tech,” said Victoria Espinel, the CEO of BSA | The Software Alliance… Espinel served as a top trade official under Obama, who by comparison had an “unusually high interest in tech,” she said. With Trump, though, Espinel added “there’s been a lot of openness to having that discussion, and learning more about tech and what it means for the economy, and what it means for jobs.”
BSA | The Software Alliance (www.bsa.org) is the leading advocate for the global software industry before governments and in the international marketplace. Its members are among the world’s most innovative companies, creating software solutions that spark the economy and improve modern life.
With headquarters in Washington, DC, and operations in more than 30 countries, BSA pioneers compliance programs that promote legal software use and advocates for public policies that foster technology innovation and drive growth in the digital economy.
