— -- Donald Trump has enlisted a number of top business leaders for an advisory committee in order to help "bring back jobs and Make America Great Again," according to a statement from his transition team.

The group, called the President's Strategic and Policy Forum, will be headed up by Blackstone co-founder Stephen Schwarzman and includes the CEOs of well-known companies.

General Motors CEO Mary Barra, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, Wal-Mart Stores CEO Doug McMillon, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink and Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger are among the members of "The Forum."

The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of ABC News.

Former CEOs like Jack Welch, who was the head of General Electric, Jim McNerney, the former CEO of Boeing, and Paul Atkins, who was the former commissioner of the Securities and Exchange Commission, are also on the list of 16 members.

"This forum brings together CEOs and business leaders who know what it takes to create jobs and drive economic growth," Trump said in the statement announcing the group.

"My administration is committed to drawing on private sector expertise and cutting the government red tape that is holding back our businesses from hiring, innovating, and expanding right here in America," he said.
