Tim Cook, Larry Page And Other Major Leaders Of Silicon Valley Will Reunite With Trump To Discuss Tech Future
Major leaders of Silicon Valley as Larry Page and Tim cook are slated to attend President-elect Donald Trump´s tech summit on December 14 at the Trump tower.

Jeff Bezos Was Included In The Major Leaders´ Invitations
According to Fortune, the major leaders that plan to attend are Oracle CEO Safra Catz, IBM CEO Ginni Rommerty, Alphabet CEO Larry Page, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins. Apparently, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos could also attend the meeting, which would be a good surprise considering the relations that he had with Trump during the presidential campaign. In fact, many believe that this could be a very controversial event, giving the fact that most of these major leaders strongly criticized the republican nominee during the elections.
However, as it was reported in a previous article, tensions decreased considerably since it was official the elections´ outcome, since a group of 40 important major leaders in tech business including Amazon, Google, Facebook and Twitter send a letter to Trump in which there were not only the typical congratulation statement but also a series of policies issues in which these firms explained its importance and the willing to work close with the new government despite the political differences.

She also stated that if he manages to reform the tax code, negotiate better trade deals and reduce regulations, the technology industry of the U.S. will be more powerful than ever.
Although the major leaders of Silicon Valley were invited to this meeting, probably the most unusual case is the one regarding Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who reportedly told that he wasn't invited to this event, but later explained that he actually doesn't know if he was. It remains unknown if he will finally attend the meeting.
