Dimon: U.S. Is Well Positioned to Build on Economic Momentum

Washington – Following the swearing in of Donald J. Trump as the 45thPresident of the United States, Business Roundtable Chairman Jamie Dimon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co., today offered the following statement to recognize the new Administration and emphasize the business community’s desire to work closely with them on a pro-growth economic agenda:

“The CEOs of Business Roundtable look forward to working with the Trump Administration and Congress in pursuing a robust economic growth agenda and the creation of high-wage jobs.
“The swearing-in of a new President represents a moment of opportunity for America and all Americans. The United States is well positioned to build on the momentum the U.S. economy is already showing. President Trump and the new Congress have both identified economic growth and job creation as top priorities, and America’s business leaders fully agree.
“There is no better time than now for enacting reasoned policies that achieve those goals. Americans can only benefit if we modernize our tax system, take a smarter approach toward regulation and invest in infrastructure.
“CEOs want this nation to succeed. We are ready to work collaboratively with President Trump, Congress, state and local leaders, unions and all the many institutions of civil society to create more opportunity for all Americans.”

Dimon became Chairman of Business Roundtable on January 1, 2017. Joshua Bolten will assume his role as President and CEO of Business Roundtable effective January 23, 2017.
