Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is among top-notch tech executives who are scheduled to meet US President-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower in New York City, media reports said on Monday.

According to Recode, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Alphabet CEO Larry Page, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich and Oracle CEO Safra Catz will attend the summit with Trump on Wednesday.

"I plan to tell the President-elect that we are with him and will help in any way we can. If he can reform the tax code, reduce regulation and negotiate better trade deals, the US technology industry will be stronger and more competitive than ever," Catz said in a statement.

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos were also invited.

"The invite came from Trump's chief of staff Reince Priebus as well as his son-in-law and chief whisperer Jared Kushner and, of course, his biggest tech supporter, investor Peter Thiel," the report said.

The Tech giants may discuss issues ranging from immigration reform, encryption and social concerns when they meet Trump who has taken opposing stances on such issues.

"Trump even called for a boycott of Apple after it refused to unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters," the report noted.

Some high-profile CEOs who may not be at the Trump meet are Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, Dropbox CEO Drew Houston and even Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
