De Global Entrepreneurship Summit laat de verschillen zien tussen de VS en Europa over zakendoen, de rol van de overheid en maatschappelijke verantwoordelijkheid.
Mike Pompeo, minister van Buitenlandse Zaken van de VS in zijn openingstoespraak:
“I want to spend a few minutes today talking about the principles that foster entrepreneurship in any society. How it is that government can get out of the way, so you can all do what it is you do that makes families here in the Netherlands and families in the United States thrive and grow.”
“Government has to stop strangling business,” Pompeo added later, before going on to boast about how the Trump administration had “slashed unnecessary regulations” and “reduced corporate taxes.”
