Pepsico Chairman and CEO , Indra Nooyi, 61, is the only Indian-American executive in the 19-member Donald Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum, which was first announced early this week.
“America has the most innovative and vibrant companies in the world, and the pioneering CEOs joining this Forum today are at the top of their fields,” Mr Trump said.
“My administration is going to work together with the private sector to improve the business climate and make it attractive for firms to create new jobs across the United States from Silicon Valley to the heartland,” he said.
The forum is designed to provide direct input to the president from many of the best and brightest in the business world in a frank, non-bureaucratic and non-partisan manner,” the media release said.
During the general election, Nooyi was a known supporter of Trump’s Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
