Chapter companies SpaceX and Tesla Motors Elon Musk, founder and CEO of Uber Travis Kalanick and Chairman of the Board of Directors of PepsiCo Indra Nooyi joined the Forum on strategies and policies established by the elected President of the United States Donald trump, the statement said the transition team.
“In America the most innovative and vibrant companies in the world. Their leaders, who are joining the forum today are the best in their field”, — said in a statement.
Forum for strategy and policy under the President of the United States was created earlier in December to meet regularly leading businessmen in the United States with the President of the country and to enable representatives of the largest U.S. companies in the informal and “non-bureaucratic” manner, to share with the President their “unique” views on the conduct of business.
“My administration will work closely with the private sector in order to improve the business climate and make it attractive for companies to create new jobs in the United States, from Silicon valley to the Central areas of the country,” the statement said trump.
Reuters noted, citing its sources, that in the list of possible participants of the forum are the names of the Google co-founder and CEO of Google Inc. Larry page, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the company Google Inc. Eric Schmidt, founder and CEO of Amazon Jeff Bezos and the name of the Microsoft Executive Satya Nadella.
These efforts are aimed at establishing warmer relations with leaders of Silicon valley, which during the election campaign massively supported Hillary Clinton, says Reuters.
“If he (trump. — ) can reform the Tax code, reduce government regulation, and to pursue a more lucrative trade deals, a technological community of the United States will become stronger and more competitive than ever before”, — quotes Reuters the words of the Executive Director of Oracle Safra Katz.
The Forum for strategy and policy originally included 16 representatives of major companies under the chairmanship of the Board of Directors of investment company Blackstone Stephen Schwarzman. Among them the leaders of such companies as General Electric, Boeing, IBM, the Walt Disney Company, JP Morgan Chase & Co, Patomak Global Partners, Wal-Mart and others.
