Trilateral Commission 2019 membership list of who really makes national & foreign policy

The 2019 Trilateral Commission complete membership list is included in this posting. Each member’s current and past major affiliations are described.

The 2020 membership list is now available – click link!

The group, founded in 1973, meets annually in secret with participants primarily from media, international business, think tanks, finance, education, lobbying and government. All major countries are represented, except Russia. The organization’s goal is diminished nationalist interests, and future government policies influenced by them and their organizations.

The Trilateral Commission’s agendas sync with those of the Group of Seven (G7) summits between the leaders of most of the world’s largest economies.

You can compare this year’s list to 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015.
