In a memorandum issued on the first day of the new Presidency, the White House Chief of Staff said .” With respect to rules that have been published in the Federal Register, or rules that have been issued in any manner, but have not taken effect, consider postponing the rules’ effective dates for 60 days from the date of this memorandum.”

A key challenge the technology sector faces is the lack of required STEM talent in the US. “The rules announced by the previous administration will worsen this talent gap. Nasscom has been actively engaged with US policy makers on these issues, and we look forward to working together with the new US Administration to find solutions to the STEM skills gap, and enable America to be more competitive, to grow and create more jobs,” The industry body said.
