(Reuters) - Argentina's President Javier Milei is set to meet with top-level executives from Google, Meta and Apple during a trip to the United States this week, his spokesman Manuel Adorni said on Monday.

Libertarian Milei is set to travel to San Francisco late on Monday and stay through Friday, during which time he is set to meet Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Apple CEO Timothy Cook and Open AI CEO Sam Altman.

He will also speak at the Bay Area Council's Pacific Summit and Stanford University's Hoover Institution, a think tank which promotes limited government, and meet with the university's chancellor and the think tank's director, Condoleezza Rice.

Rice served as U.S. Secretary of State and National Security Advisor in the administration of former U.S. President George W. Bush.

Milei is also scheduled to meet with economists from the think tank as well as investors and entrepreneurs linked to artificial intelligence (AI).

The president is set to fly back on Friday evening, after a stopover in El Salvador where he will attend the inauguration of the second term of President Nayib Bukele, who won a landslide re-election in February.

Milei met Tesla CEO Elon Musk in Texas in April, when they discussed a variety of topics, from the need to boost declining birthrates worldwide to pursuing technological development and defending "liberty."
