On Wednesday, President-elect Donald Trump added three more high-profile CEOs — Pepsi (PEP) CEO Indra Nooyi, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, and Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk — to his Strategic and Policy Forum.

The forum is meant for members to share their expertise from the private sector on how government policy impacts economic growth, job creation and productivity.

“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,” Trump said in a statement.

With Pepsi’s Nooyi on board, expect there to be plenty of discussion about some serious issues.

Just two days after the election, Nooyi, a Hillary Clinton supporter, spoke at the Dealbook Conference.

“Is there a box of tissues here?” Nooyi responded when asked by Andrew Ross Sorkin for her reaction to the election results. “I’ll tell you, first of all, I want to congratulate President Donald Trump. Because the election is over, I think, we should mourn for those of us who supported the other side, but we have to come together and life has to go on.”
