President-elect Donald Trump has added Pepsi’s Indian-American CEO Indra Nooyi to a team of America’s top business leaders he set up to advise him on economic issues, including GM’s Mary Barra and Disney’s Bob Iger.

The Strategic and Policy Forum, as the group is called, was established earlier this month to “meet with the president frequently to share their specific experience and knowledge as the president implements his economic agenda”.

It started out with 16 members, led by Blackstone’s Stephen A Schwarzman. Other members include JP Morgan Chase’s Jamie Dimon, IBM’s Ginni Romety, Wal-Mart’s Doug McMillon, and Jack Welch, the iconic former CEO of General Electrics.

Trump announced the addition of three new members on Wednesday — Nooyi, Tesla’s Ellon Musk and Uber’s Travis Kalanick.
