WASHINGTON - US President-elect Donald Trump Wednesday added three business leaders to his Strategic Policy Forum, and said he will be meeting with a panel of tech firm executives for their advice on promoting the tech industry.

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, Tesla CEO Elon Musk and PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi have been added to Trump's business advisory forum, which was first assembled early this month.

The forum, which previously consisted of 16 business leaders, will "share their specific experience and knowledge as the president implements his economic agenda."

Members of the forum represent some of the most prominent US corporations, including Wal Mart, Boeing, Disney, General Motors and JP Morgan Chase.

In addition, Trump's transition team said Wednesday he is scheduled to meet a group of executive from the country's top technology companies, including Facebook, Apple, Google, Intel, IBM and Microsoft.

The meeting is set up to "discuss how to bring tech job back to America," Trump spokesman Jason Miller said.
