Welcome to the website of the Trilateral Commission.
The Commission was originally created in 1973 to bring together experienced leaders within the private sector to discuss issues of global concern at a time when communication and cooperation between Europe, North America, and Asia were lacking. The Commission has grown since its early days to include members from more countries in these regions, and it continues to find that study and dialogue about the pressing problems facing our planet remain as important today as in 1973. Problems and threats have changed, but their importance has only increased due to the more interconnected and interdependent world in which we now live.
We hope you find the information on this website helpful in understanding the broad range of interests and views of the Trilateral membership.

DAVID ROCKEFELLER FELLOWS
The Trilateral Commission, founded by David Rockefeller in 1973, has established a program to select a number of David Rockefeller Fellows to join its meetings. The Commission’s Executive Committee voted in March 2013 to create a Fellows program in each region - Europe, Pacific Asia and North America and invite the Fellows to plenary and regional meetings for a term of three years each - both to honor the Commission’s founder and to benefit from the views and experiences of a generation of young leaders.
