The White House on Monday will hold a virtual CEO Summit on semiconductor and supply chain resilience, according to a pool report.

The report said the event will be hosted by National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and National Economic Council Director Brian Deese and will also include Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo.

"They will discuss the American Jobs Plan and steps to strengthen the resilience of American supply chains for semiconductors and other key areas," according to the pool report.

More than a dozen companies are set to participate, including Google parent company Alphabet, Dell Technologies, General Motors, HP and Samsung. The only defense contractor included is Northrop Grumman, according to the list provided by the pool report.

A Northrop spokesman confirmed Kathy Warden, the company's chief executive, will attend the summit.
