"China obviously represents incredible potential for the Walt Disney Company, in the near term and over the long-term. Obviously because of the size of this market, and the fact that generally speaking our stories resonate quite well here, as I mentioned in my earlier remarks."

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Bob Iger, Disney Chairman and Chief Executive Officer: "The primary goal in terms of buying Pixar was to grow and improve Disney animation. And for Pixar and their great artists to become part of Disney. I always felt that in doing that not only would we create great movies but that Pixar and its characters and places and stories would show up in many other places at Disney. I never quite envisioned it would be this grand or this great, but it was definitely within the realm of possibility."
DISNEY CEO BOB IGER IS RESIGNING FROM THE WHITE HOUSE ADVISORY COUNCIL
Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger is resigning from his position on a White House advisory council in response to President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement.
Iger tweeted his decision on Thursday (1JUNE), just a few hours after Elon Musk exited the council. Iger says it was a matter of principle.
As a Democrat who supported Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, Iger faced criticism for his participation in Trump's advisory council, but he assured Disney shareholders that participation did not equal endorsement.
Iger isn't the only business leader weighing in on the president's decision. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says in a post that Trump's decision is "bad for the environment, bad for the economy, and it puts our children's future at risk."
President Trump announced that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, but will begin negotiations to "re-enter either the Paris accord or an entirely new transaction."
Trump says during a White House Rose Garden announcement that the U.S. will exit the landmark climate agreement aimed at reducing carbon emissions to slow climate change.
Trump says the deal "disadvantages" the U.S. and is causing lost jobs and lower wages.
The announcement fulfills one of Trump's top campaign pledges. But it also undermines world efforts to combat global warming.
The U.S. had agreed under former President Barack Obama to reduce emissions to 26 percent to 28 percent of 2005 levels by 2025 -- about 1.6 billion tons.
