Bilderberg Group to talk about a potential global financial meltdown, particularly how to ensure a “continuity of government” amid upheavals in the economy
The global banking and financial industries are also well represented at the meeting
Normally, every few years the Bilderberg Group meets in Chantilly, Virginia, which is outside DC, but this year in particular the group is trying to keep the actual meeting location secret.
The geopolitical pivot of Russia and China away from the West is the main focus of this year’s meeting, according to a press release, but perhaps more interestingly, the Bilderberg Group will also talk about a potential global financial meltdown, particularly how to ensure a “continuity of government” amid upheavals in the economy.
“Founded in 1954, the Bilderberg Meeting is an annual conference designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America,” the press release states. “Every year, between 120-140 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, labour, academia and the media are invited to take part in the Meeting.”
“About two thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America; approximately a quarter from politics and government and the rest from other fields.”
The Bilderberg Group also released a public list of attendees, including Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), and CIA Director William J. Burns.
The global banking and financial industries are also well represented at the meeting, according to the list.
Former Secretary of State Henry Kissenger, who recently courted controversy by suggesting Ukraine should cede territory to end its war with Russia, will also be present.
That said, it’s notable that Ukraine is listed as the very last topic of discussion at the meeting; the overall geopolitical realignment – and its resulting economic repercussions – are given far more importance.
“The Bilderberg Meeting is a forum for informal discussions about major issues,” the press release added. “The meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule, which states that participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s) nor any other participant may be revealed.”
