Most tech sector workers are optimistic that their industry will improve in the next four years under President-elect Donald Trump, according to a survey released Jan. 5.
Trump has put a heavy focus on jobs, trade and immigration as he prepares to take office Jan. 20. His tech policy agenda, however, has remained sparse.
Yet, 56 percent of individuals who work or invest in the tech sector, along with 66 percent of the general public, said the tech industry will be better in the next four years, according to an “Age of Trump Technology Policy Survey” by global public relation firm Burson-Marsteller. The survey was conducted from Dec. 6 to Dec. 13 among 1,500 people.
The survey found that 59 percent of what it called “tech elites” and 50 percent of the general public said Trump is supportive of the tech industry. The survey found that 42 percent of tech elites and 39 percent of the general public said the industry will become “more innovative than ever” under Trump. Those numbers compare to 28 percent of tech elites and 21 percent of the public who said the industry will become more stagnant, according to the survey.
Trump met with tech industry leaders from Facebook Inc., Amazon.com Inc. and others Dec. 14 to discuss job creation, innovation, among other topics. “I’m here to help you folks do well,” Trump told them.
