Bilderberg Meeting -1997- Atlanta Georgia

Bilderberg Meeting of 1997 Assembles...


The 45th Bilderberg Meeting will be held near Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A. June 12- 15, 1997 to
     discuss the Atlantic Relationship in a Time of Change. Among others the Conference will discuss
     NATO, China, Islam, EMU, Energy, Growth, Corporate Governance.

     Approximately 120 participants from North America and Europe will attend the discussions. The
meeting is private in order to encourage frank and open discussion.

     Bilderberg takes its name from the Hotel where the first meeting took place in May 1954. That
meeting grew out of the concern on both sides of the Atlantic that the industrialized democracies
in Europe and North America were not working together as closely as they should on matters of
critical importance. It was felt that regular, off-the-record discussions would contribute to a better
understanding of the complex forces and major trends affecting Western nations.

     What is unique about Bilderberg as a forum is (1) the broad cross -section of leading citizens, in
and out of government, that are assembled for nearly three days of purely informal discussion
about topics of current concern especially in the fields of foreign affairs and the international
economy, (2) the strong feeling among participants that in view of the differing attitudes and
experiences of their nations, there is a continuous, clear need to develop an understanding in
which these concerns can be accommodated, and (3) the privacy of the meetings, which have no
purpose other than to allow participants to speak their minds openly and freely.

     At the meetings, no resolutions are proposed, no votes taken, and no policy statements issued.
In short, Bilderberg is a flexible and informal international leadership-forum in which different
viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced.

     To ensure full discussion, individuals representing a wide range of political and economic points of
view are invited. Two-thirds of the participants come from Europe and the remainder from the
United States and Canada. Within this framework, on average about one-third are from the
government sector and the remaining two-thirds from a variety of fields including finance, industry,
labour, education and the media.

     Participants are solely invited for their knowledge, experience and standing and with reference to
the topics on the agenda.

     All participants attend Bilderberg in a private and not in an official capacity.

     Participants have agreed not to give interviews to the press during the meeting. In contacts with
the news media after the conference it is an established rule that no attribution should be made
to individual participants of what was discussed during the meeting.

     There will be no press conference. A list of participants is appended.
