The Trilateral Commission was formed in 1973 by private citizens of Japan, Europe (European Union countries), and North America (United States and Canada) to foster closer cooperation among these core democratic industrialized areas of the world with shared leadership responsibilities in the wider international system.
The Trilateral Commission's primary objective is to establish close cooperation amoung its members in government and business feilds internationally.
