(New York, NY) - President-elect Donald J. Trump today met with more than a dozen of the greatest tech leaders in the country to begin a conversation and partnership in order to spark innovation and create more jobs in the U.S., particularly for working Americans.

In addition to the private sector leaders in attendance, the President-elect was joined by Vice President-elect Mike Pence, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Peter Thiel, Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon, Wilbur Ross, Gary Cohn and Stephen Miller. During the meeting the President-elect discussed a wide range of issues impacting both American workers and American companies, including specific innovative solutions that have been blocked by narrow thinking in Washington.

The President-elect expressed an open mind and willingness to listen, which was greatly received by the industry leaders in attendance.

During the Tech Summit, the following topics were discussed:

  • Creating more jobs for American workers
  • Climinating barriers preventing American companies from doing business in other countries
  • America's competitive trade dynamic and market access with China
  • Cutting taxes
  • Repatriation of American profits kept overseas by prohibitive tax rates
  • Improving our physical and digital infrastructures
  • Protecting our intellectual property rights
  • Improving America's cybersecurity
  • Updating our government software systems
  • Technology in schools,
  • The need for greater vocational education opportunities
  • Reducing bureaucracy
  • Introducing greater accountability in the government procurement process.

The leaders in attendance also praised the ingenuity and energy of the American workforce, and President-elect Trump suggested reconvening the tech leaders again in the future, perhaps as frequently as every quarter.

Tech leaders in attendance included:

  • Jeff Bezos, Amazon
  • Safra Catz, Oracle
  • Tim Cook, Apple
  • Alex Karp, Palantir
  • Brian Krzanich, Intel
  • Elon Musk, Tesla
  • Satya Nadella, Microsoft
