The convention was held among top technology industry leaders in an attempt to accelerate innovation during Trump's term.

The session focused on methods of modernising government technology and increasing cybersecurity.

A senior Trump administration official said:

This is the beginning of a multi-year process.

But we have to start now.

And this day we believe will be a significant one in terms of generating ideas and potential solutions to some of the problems.

There are different things that need to get done in the country.
