USA: The 68th Bilderberg Meeting took place between June 2nd and June 5th 2022 in Washington, D.C., USA. Around 120 participants from 21 countries attended. As ever, a diverse group of political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia, labour and the media were invited.

5. Sino-US Tech Competition
7. Continuity of Government and the Economy
8. Disruption of the Global Financial System

13. Trade and Deglobalisation
Founded in 1954, the Bilderberg Meeting is an annual secretive meeting that we are told is designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America.
Every year, between 120-140 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, labour, academia and the media are invited to take part in the secretive meeting.
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.
Thanks to the private nature of the Meeting, the participants take part as individuals rather than in any official capacity and hence are not bound by the conventions of their office or by pre-agreed positions.
