White House Sets Meeting With Tech CEOs Over Innovation, Future Jobs

1 min read

The Trump administration will meet with top tech executives on Dec. 6 at the White House to discuss innovation and job opportunities, Reuters reported Friday.

Microsoft and Oracle already confirmed participation in the meeting. The White House also expects chief executives from Alphabet Inc., Blackstone Group and Qualcomm Inc. An administration official said talks will mainly focus on future jobs in the technology industry. White House adviser Larry Kudlow announced in October the government’s interest in holding a meeting with industry leaders. 

“We’re going to have a little conference —  the president will preside over it — we will have big internet companies, big social media companies, search companies,” he said. 

President Trump initially met with the heads of 18 U.S.-based technology companies, including Apple Inc, Amazon.com and Microsoft, in 2017. The meeting sought guidance from industry leaders to make the government’s computing systems more efficient.
