CCIA Applauds Confirmation of New Leadership to White House OSTP

Washington — The Computer & Communications Industry Association applauds the unanimous Senate confirmation of Dr. Kelvin Droegemeier as director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. The position, which has been vacant for nearly two years, serves as the chief advisor to the president on a wide range of tech issues both domestically and internationally.

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

“This is a vitally important link to the administration that has been missing for far too long. The tech industry has increasingly been the focus of policymakers, and this confirmation will help secure continued cooperation and collaboration between the two. We look forward to the opportunity to work with Dr. Droegemeier on a host of emerging issues as OSTP works to expand partnerships within industry and academia.”
