Tech Industry Offers Joint Statement Ahead Of G7 Meeting On Future Jobs

Washington — Ahead of today’s G7 Meeting of Innovation and Employment Ministers, the Computer & Communications Industry Association along with several other associations released a joint statement on one of the Canadian Presidency’s major themes for the G7 – preparing for jobs of the future. CCIA and others urged leaders of the world’s largest economies to be forward-thinking in approaches to preparing the workforce, noting that technology and the internet provide increasing opportunities for businesses of all sizes. The letter encouraged G7 leaders to enable innovation in artificial intelligence to further economic growth and foster worker flexibility, while protecting consumers from any actual harm.

The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:

“The internet and technology bring new opportunities and innovation, and countries wanting to grow their economy can support this with policies that educate next generation workers in STEM fields. Companies and policymakers will need to work together to ensure workers have the programs, training and flexibility needed to adapt to new opportunities as well as mitigate any disruptions to jobs from emerging technologies like artificial intelligence.”
