One technology CEO told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" that he expects the global macro-economy in the next year to mirror that in 2015, even with challenges in China, North Korea and Europe.
"When I look at 2016, I think from our perspective, from a macro-economic perspective, a copy of 2015," said Intel CEO Brian Krzanich. "We saw China slow down in '15. We expect it to stay pretty stable but slower than the growth we've seen in prior years for 2016. Our model says emerging markets, they also are slower as well. But the U.S. and Western Europe continue to grow at the pace they've been growing, as well."
Krzanich spoke Wednesday from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where technology companies are stationed this week to show off their newest products and partnerships. Despite economic uncertainty, Intel has its sights set on the future of the cloud, Krzanich told CNBC.
