President Donald Trump is set to give remarks after meeting with the CEOs of some of America's largest companies at the White House on Wednesday.

More than a year after Trump's business councils were scrapped amid the fallout from Trump's comments about a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, a handful of chief executives and other business and political leaders convened for the first American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting.

A dozen CEOs — including Apple's Tim Cook, Marillyn Hewson of Lockheed Martin, The Home Depot's Craig Menear and Barbara Humpton of Siemens USA — were scheduled to attend the event. Union leaders, such as Sean McGarvey of North America's Building Trades Unions, and politicians including the governors of Iowa and Indiana, were also expected to attend.

The new board is co-chaired by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and the president's daughter, Ivanka Trump. Its first meeting was intended to focus on public-private collaboration to improve students and workers' career skills.
