President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday announced new members of the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum, including iCEOs from Uber Technologies, SpaceX and PepsiCo.

Mr. Trump Tower organized the forum to help craft economic policy geared toward spurring new business and job growth.

“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.”

Earlier this month, Mr. Trump established the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum with 16 initial members. The forum, which is composed of some of America’s most prominent business leaders, will be called upon frequently to meet with the president to share their specific experience and knowledge for the president’s economic agenda, according to the transition team officials.

The Forum is chaired by Stephen A. Schwarzman, co-founder and CEO of multinational private equity firm Blackstone.

The new members of the Forum are Travis Kalanick, co-founder and CEO of Uber Technologies; Elon Musk, chairman and cEO of SpaceX and Tesla; and Indra Nooyi, chairman and CEO of PepsiCo.

They will join leaders from businesses that include General Motors, Cleveland Clinic, JPMorgan Chase & Co, BlackRock, Walt Disney Company, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Boeing and IBM.
