PerpetratorsBilderberg/Steering committee
DescriptionThe 45th Bilderberg meeting

The 1997 Bilderberg Meeting was the 45th such meeting and had participants from European countries, the United States and Canada. It was chaired by Peter Carrington and was held held at Lake Lanier, Georgia, USA. Exceptionally for a 20th century Bilderberg meeting, the location of the meeting was leaked before it happened. The 115 guests included 33 business executives, 23 politicians, 7 financiers, 12 editors/journalists and 13 academics. The next meeting was the 1998 Bilderberg.

Secret attendance

Although not listed, Hillary Clinton was seen at the conference greeting the guests.[1] Although she has repeatedly denied having attended the group (even going so far in 2007 as pretending not to know of it)[2][3], emails posted to the Clinton Presidential Library & Museum reveal that she spoke there to strongly endorse "immediate NATO membership for the Baltics". [4]


The April 1997 edition of The Portman Papers leaked the location of the 1997 Bilderberg meeting under the headline Bilderberg treason first decided it, single currency means the end of Britain.[5]

Jim Tucker published about the 1997 Bilderberg meeting.[6]


The 1997 Bilderberg Agenda has not been leaked, but the website at Bilderberg Meetings has posted an agenda.

1. Will NATO's Enlargement Affect the Transatlantic Alliance?

2. Do the World's Energy Needs Prevent Sustainable Development?

3. Growth through Productivity Improvement: a Threat to Western Social Cohesion?
