DescriptionThe 17th Bilderberg and the 2nd in Canada

The 1968 Bilderberg Meeting was the 17th such meeting and had participants from 15 European countries, the United States, Canada and "various international organisations".[1] It was held at the Lodge at Mont Tremblant, Canada. The 91 guests included 22 business executives, 22 politicians, 7 financiers, 11 editors/journalists and 7 academics. The next meeting was the 1969 Bilderberg.


The 1968 Bilderberg Agenda has been leaked and is now online.[1] James Perkins spoke on universities. Bill Moyers spoke on the condition of the US administration, commenting that Lyndon Johnson although healthy was "obviously a weary man".[2]

1. The Relations between the West and the Communist Countries

The background for discussion of this item of the Agenda consisted of a paper prepared by a German participant which was distributed before the meeting. The author of this paper began by noting that for more than a decade relations between the Western powers and the Soviet bloc had been characterized by the development oflimited but important elements of co-operation along with the persistence of overriding conflict.[1]

In appraising the shortcomings and imperfections of the Atlantic Alliance, considerable attention was paid to the unsatisfactory state of public opinion vis-a-vis NATO.[1]

2. Internationalization of Business

The groundwork for discussion of this item consisted of three papers prepared by an American and two French participants. These papers had been distributed among participants some weeks before the meeting.[1] One of the speakers was Dr. Henri Hartung, whose paper on The Internationalization of Business: The Social Aspect has been posted online.
