White House to Hold Roundtable With Tech Executives

The Trump administration will hold a roundtable discussion on innovation with top tech executives, a move that marks an easing of tensions between the White House and big Silicon Valley firms.

The panel, to be held next Thursday, will discuss “bold, transformational ideas” that “can help ensure U.S. leadership in industries of the future,” according to a White House email.

Executives expected to participate include Microsoft Corp. Chief Executive Satya Nadella, Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai, Oracle Corp. co-Chief Executive Safra Catz, Qualcomm Inc. Chief Executive Steve Mollenkopf and others, the email says. Blackstone Group LP, Chief Executive Stephen Schwarzman and Carnegie Mellon University president Farnam Jahanian also will take part.
