Arlington, VA (February 24, 2021) – The Telecommunications Industry Association—the trusted industry association for the connected world—released a statement on President Biden’s supply chain executive order.

“TIA thanks President Biden for taking swift action to secure America’s critical supply chains. Resilient and trusted telecommunications networks are key to securing our nation’s —and ultimately the world’s — ICT supply chain,” said CEO David Stehlin. “Beyond that, we again urge the administration to work with industry on technology-neutral policies as it takes on the task of reviewing ICT supply chains.
