U.S. President Donald Trump plans to meet with Google CEO Sundar Pichai and other tech executives this month at a social media summit.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Tuesday that the administration hoped Facebook and Twitter would send representatives to the meeting. Kudlow added the event would most likely happen in mid-October, though no date has been set.

Prominent conservatives, including the president, have accused Facebook, Google and Twitter of silencing right-leaning voices on their platforms, a suspected practice called “shadow banning.”

Kudlow had a meeting with Pichai last Friday, which he described as “great.”

In a bid to build a sustainable digital model for local news, Google has entered into a three-year partnership with UK publisher Archant for Project Neon which will target up to three communities, identified as being currently underserved by local news.

The project will build new all-digital news platforms for those communities, created in a concerted effort to reverse the commercial challenges local news publishers have faced in the past decade.

“Project Neon will rethink local news from every perspective, from storytelling to layout, from business models to website design,” Matt Kelly, Chief Content Officer, Archant, said in a blog post on Thursday.
