Tech Industry Plan for Economic Recovery to Be Revealed at June 16 'Newsmaker' Media Briefing Hosted by National Press Club WASHINGTON, June 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), will announce the launch of a national innovation movement spearheaded by the technology industry, entrepreneurs and everyday Americans to support government policies needed to generate global economic recovery at a National Press Club Newsmaker press conference at noon on Tuesday, June 16, in the Edward R. Murrow Room, 13th floor, National Press Building, 529 14th St., N.W., Washington, D.C. (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20080917/NPCLOGO) Shapiro will also unveil the results of a independent national survey that shows how Americans perceive the United States' economic future and its ability to remain a global economic leader over the course of the next decade. The survey will reveal attitudes toward American innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the face of economic change. Innovation, technological advancement and entrepreneurial activity are at the heart of the grassroots movement led by the CEA. Shapiro will urge Congress and the private sector to work together to support policies that will stimulate America's innovation economy. As the cornerstone of a national innovation strategy, Shapiro will recommend that Congress and the Obama administration evaluate each legislative proposal using a six-point checklist that asks whether a bill: 1) creates American jobs; 2) spurs new technology; 3) encourages the best and brightest to come to the United States; 4) rewards innovation and investment; 5) promotes exports; and 6) fosters productivity and energy efficiency.
