Donald Trump’s Business-Policy Forum to Now Include IBM President Ginni Rometty, Among 16 Industry Leaders

The President-elect will reform existing business policies of the US by seeking strategic advice from the tech CEO and other business leaders in the country. 

Transforming a country’s economy is fused with an optimum alteration of business strategies that favor trade within the country’s limits and beyond. In the US, replacing business laws & policies set up by the ousting political party becomes a huge responsibility for the newly-instated legislative government. For President-elect Donald Trump, this duty is likely to be eased out as Republicans have secured outright dominance in the Senate as well as the House of Representatives. Before he joins the White House, Trump is prepping for his meeting with some of the most successful business leaders in the country, noting down their advice on how the US business laws can be refurbished to regain economic progression of the country.

Donald Trump has appointed sixteen business leaders from the country as members of the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum. And, the most recent name to be inducted is Virginia Marie “Ginni” Rometty – the CEO of IBM Corporation. According to recent announcement from Trump’s representatives, Ginni Rometty will consult the President-elect in the process of curbing the repositioning of US jobs in other countries. Stemming the relocation of jobs and business opportunities from US to other countries remains to be a chief priority for Trump’s presidency, which further compels Rometty and other business leaders to keep their strategic business consultation suited for the growth of US economy.

IBM Corp has been criticized by Trump for manufacturing products out of the country, subcontracting services overseas and offshoring the jobs of several US employees. With Rometty’s inclusion in the Policy Forum, Trump is likely to assert his thoughts on how the tech company should no longer rely on unreasonable manufacturing laws and expensive labor costs existing in the US. Among his recent speeches, Trump had also indicated that companies outsourcing their US-based operations will be constrained with imposition of a whopping 35% import tax. The impending Strategic Business Policy forum will include consultation from IBM CEO Rometty and the country’s leading businessmen such as the chief executives of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., The Walt Disney Co., and General Motors Co., among others.
