CEA: House Action on Trade Incomplete and DisappointingJune 15, 2015 | Business Wire
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
The following statement is attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), in response to the House’s failure to pass Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) package legislation today:
“We are pleased the House passed Trade Promotion Authority, as the U.S. must be able to negotiate trade agreements in order to stay competitive in the world market. We are disappointed by the House’s failure to pass Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) legislation, as it was part of the package for TPA legislation. We are hopeful the House will reconsider its ‘cut off your nose to spite your face’ rejection of TAA and move quickly toward passage, so the benefits of the TPA package may be realized.
“Americans thrive on trade and relish competition—we are not isolationists. A successful TPA package will support the hundreds of thousands of businesses that export products and help ensure our country’s strong, sustained economic growth.
“We thank the administration for making trade a priority and the members from both parties who voted in favor of TPA and TAA. Now, we encourage House members to swiftly pass TAA legislation next week and, in turn, secure the passage of TPA to ensure our presidents have the authority to negotiate vital, innovation-spurring agreements.”

Purdue’s Semiconductor Innovation Ecosystem Grows with CHIPS-funded, Indiana-led Semiconductor Hub and With Upcoming Summit09/25/2023 | Purdue University
Purdue University continues building momentum as America’s leading university in semiconductors, with a broad range of updates this fall semester.
"Electronics systems are at the heart of almost all modern technology. The performance and functionality of these systems have increased at breathtaking speed, chiefly as a result of advancements in semiconductor technology. Semiconductors do not function in isolation," writes Alison James, IPC senior director of government relations, in a 2023 report for the European Commission’s Directorate General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship. "These electronics systems feature prominently in key sectors like defence, aerospace, space, automotive, medical, and high-performance computing, but electronics are vital to every industry and are central to a variety of EU priorities, including the twin digital and green transitions and Europe’s technological sovereignty."
APCT, a leading name in the PCB and electronics industry, is delighted to announce the appointment of Peter Austin as its President and CEO, effective September 1. Peter takes the reins from former CEO, Steve Robinson, who has retired after years of dedicated service to the company.
