The following statement is attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, regarding the results of the 2020 election:

"We congratulate President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their victory. Both President-elect Biden and President Trump turned out a record number of voters this election. We appreciate the hard work that went into counting all the ballots and thank the poll workers across the country for their tireless work this last week.

"Our vibrant technology sector is the envy of the world. We look forward to working with President-elect Biden and his administration, as well as the new Congress to advance priorities that promote innovation and competition in America. Specifically, we look forward to recalibrating our trade policies, promoting free online speech by preserving section 230 protections, and ensuring all Americans have the access and benefits of high-speed broadband. We are also committed to attracting the best and brightest to work in America through meaningful immigration reform and by training the American workforce on the skills needed to compete in the tech economy.

"We look forward to the peaceful transition of power which both parties have followed and respected and sets us apart for many other countries."
