拜登政府迅速开展疫情防控,获美商界领袖称赞

拜登政府迅速开展疫情防控,获美商界领袖称赞

王波非(Phil Wahba) 2021年01月21日
美国企业界同时也希望拜登团队在移民和基础设施方面取得进展。

很快,拜登政府就展开了行动。

1月20日,商业圆桌会议(Business Roundtable)向新上任的拜登政府发出了一份祝贺声明,称赞其承诺迅速采取行动以遏制新冠疫情。商业圆桌会议由美国近200家大型企业的首席执行官组成,在业内颇具影响力。

商业圆桌会议的这一声明在美国总统乔•拜登和副总统贺锦丽(Kamala Harris)的就职典礼结束后不久发出。该会议的成员包括沃尔玛(Walmart)、摩根大通(JPMorgan Chase)和波音(Boeing)等公司的首席执行官。

新一届政府正着手在上任100天内为1亿美国公民接种疫苗——这个目标费资费力,但受到了美国企业界的欢迎。截至目前,新冠疫情已经造成40多万美国民众死亡,全美医院不堪重负。此外,疫情还给美国经济造成了巨大的破坏,零售和食品服务等行业遭受到的打击最为严重。

商业圆桌会议的首席执行官乔舒亚•博尔顿在声明中说:“我们赞赏新政府为尽快结束疫情采取的迅速行动,包括制定强有力的全国性计划、扩大疫苗接种规模等。”

相比之下,由美国前总统唐纳德•特朗普领导的上届政府时常否认疫情的严重性,在协调应对计划时缺乏组织性。包括沃尔玛和梅西百货(Macy’s)等公司首席执行官在内的许多商业领袖都曾经对此表示失望。

1月20日,拜登政府获得了来自亚马逊(Amazon.com)的物流层面的帮助。本周早些时候,星巴克(Starbucks)也为新政府提供了帮助。

同样是在本周,沃尔玛的首席执行官、商业圆桌会议的主席董明伦(Doug McMillon)也表达了大型企业对控制疫情的迫切希望。他说:“拜登政府和国会有机会扭转疫情现状。解决疫情危机必须是当下最首要的任务。”

两周前的国会冲击事件之后,商业圆桌会议和美国商会(U.S. Chamber of Commerce)、美国全国制造业协会(National Association of Manufacturers)等其他商业团体与明面上支持商业发展的特朗普政府的关系持续恶化,事件发生后,前者还曾经激烈抨击特朗普煽动其支持者的行径。在部分资深共和党人领导推翻2020年11月3日的大选结果后,许多大公司都表示,它们将自此削减政治捐款。

随着新一届政府的成立,商界领袖呼吁改善移民体系,关注基础设施的更新,为因疫情而陷入严重财务困境的美国民众提供支持。他们还提出,新一届政府应该致力于减轻气候变化的影响,并加速疫苗的推广。

1月20日下午,美国商会在推特(Twitter)上写道:“我们欢迎拜登总统重新加入《巴黎气候协定》(Paris Climate Agreement)的行动。在应对气候挑战的国际行动中,美国恢复自己的领导地位是至关重要的。”(财富中文网)

That didn't take long.

The Business Roundtable, an influential association of the chief executive officers of almost 200 of America’s biggest companies, sent out a congratulatory statement to the newly installed Biden administration on January 20 to praise it for its pledge to act quickly in taming the COVID-19 pandemic.

The group, whose members include the chiefs of companies such as Walmart, JPMorgan Chase, and Boeing, sent out the statement soon after the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris ended.

The new administration has set out to vaccinate 100 million Americans in its first 100 days, an ambitious goal but one welcomed by corporate America. The pandemic so far has killed more than 400,000 Americans and overwhelmed hospitals nationwide, and also wrought enormous destruction to the U.S. economy, particularly in sectors such as retail and food service.

"We applaud the new Administration for taking swift action to bring an end to the pandemic, including by developing a strong national plan to scale up vaccination," the Business Roundtable's CEO Joshua Bolten said in a statement.

The previous administration, led by Donald Trump, often denied the severity of the pandemic, or was disorganized in coordinating a response, to the frustration of many business leaders including the CEOs of Walmart and Macy's, among others.

The Biden administration on January 20 earned an offer of help toward its goal from Amazon.com, to help with logistics, in addition to one from Starbucks earlier this week.

Also this week, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon, chairman of the Business Roundtable, echoed the sense of urgency big business feels about taming the pandemic. "The Biden Administration and Congress have the opportunity to turn the corner on this pandemic," he said. "Addressing the health crisis has to be the top priority."

The Business Roundtable, and other business groups such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers, had soured on the ostensibly pro-business Trump administration in the wake of the violent mob attack on the Capitol two weeks ago and harshly criticized Trump for inciting his supporters. And after some senior Republicans led an effort to overturn the Nov. 3 election results, many large companies said they would pull back on political donations as a result.

With a new administration in place, business leaders have called for improvements to the immigration system, focus on renewing infrastructure, support for Americans in dire financial straits because of the pandemic, and efforts to mitigate the impacts of climate change, in addition to accelerating the vaccine rollout.

"We welcome President Biden’s action to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement. It is critical that the United States restore its leadership role in international efforts to address the climate challenge," the U.S. Chamber of Commerce tweeted on January 20 afternoon.
