and others would be joining a 25-member advisory board, co-chaired by Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, alongside the US Commerce Secretary, Wilbur Ross. According to a public notice, the newly formed council of CEOs would hold its first meeting on Wednesday (March 6th) afternoon at the White House Complex, while a White House spokesman had confirmed that the US president, Donald Trump, would likely to attend part of the sessions.

The three-hour-long meeting would be streamed live from the White House. On Saturday, the 2nd of March, a White House Official failed to confirm the list of CEOs attending the meeting, however, he also added that most of the CEOs would likely to join.

During the announcement of the 25-member advisory boards of CEOs, the White House said last month, “The board members are to serve until 2020 to develop and implement a strategy to revamp the American workforce to better meet the challenges of the 21st century. ”
