With the pace at which the use of technology is growing; the company has also urged formulation of new laws “fit for the future”. Lastly, innovation in technology should be used to create more business opportunities; to increase productivity and improve the economy. Smith went on to say:


“When we consider all these issues, it is apparent that there are opportunities to build new bridges between us; and to strengthen the ties that bind us in common purpose. All these challenges are ripe for bipartisan collaboration; and for government and industry cooperation.


“This opportunity to build new bridges extends to the international arena as well. […] None of this means that the differences that divide Americans are unimportant. We live with different views on many fundamental issues. As a company, we have not shied away from controversies that we care about; whether they involve racial equity, immigration or climate change. Under each of the last two American presidents, we found that we were served best by efforts to partner where we can; while standing apart where we should. And we will continue with this approach.


“Along the way, we have learned that we have far more opportunities to partner across the political spectrum; than most people recognize. But we need to move from debates about why we cannot succeed to conversations about how we can.” Smith has stated that if these bridges are built and crossed together; he is optimistic about the next four years.
