According to New York Times, most of the companies were reticent ahead of the event because they did not see eye to eye with Trump on his various election promises on outsourcing and digital security.
Dean C. Garfield, president of the Information Technology Industry Council, a trade body of the IT sector, was quoted as saying that there were many prospective areas of partnership between the IT industry and the Trump administration.
Ms. Catz, the co CEO of Oracle, went on record to say that she was planning to let Trump know that we would cooperate with him on various matters.
Meanwhile, Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, was at Trump Tower on 13 December for a tête-à-tête with the president–elect. Gates said that they had a nice conversation over innovation, education and other things.
What it meant for H1-B visas or L1 visas is anybody’s guess. And since most big companies in this sector have invested hundreds of billion dollars in various countries, what would have opened at that front is also keenly awaited.
