Tech leaders head to White House, discuss building economic growth

Leaders from 25 technology companies and venture capital firms will meet with U.S. Office of Science and Technology Policy officials June 22 as part of the Trump administration's "tech week," reports The Hill.

The meetings will focus on "outward facing tech policy" and "defending America's leadership in the technology economy," senior White House officials said June 21, according to The Hill.

Invitees — including Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure, GE CEO Jeff Immelt and AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson — will participate in one of three working groups, discussing emerging technology areas such as drones, 5G wireless broadband and the Internet of Things. Other federal officials, including Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, will also be in attendance.

This event — titled "American Leadership in Emerging Technology" — follows President Donald Trump's discussion with technology CEOs on modernizing governmental IT infrastructure June 19.
