December 20, 2016

Washington, DC—Ambassador David A. Gross, co-chair of Wiley Rein’s Telecom, Media & Technology (TMT) Practice, recently participated in an informative panel discussion addressing “Innovation Priorities for the New Administration.” The two-part program, organized by the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation (ITIF) and the Technology Policy Institute (TPI), was held on December 15 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

The first panel—entitled “IT and Internet Policy Priorities”—was moderated by ITIF President Robert Atkinson, and featured Amb. Gross, along with Maureen Ohlhausen, Commissioner at the Federal Trade Commission, and Shane Tews, a Visiting Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

The two-panel program focused on how the new Administration may reevaluate policies that affect innovation and technological development and how federal policies can promote broadband buildout, spur investment in intelligent infrastructure, encourage research and development, and advance a host of other actions that have the potential to improve productivity and the U.S. economy.
