Other participants in the call included Procter & Gamble Co, Intel Corp, MetLife Inc, Goldman Sachs Group Inc, Morgan Stanley, United Parcel Service Inc, Merck & Co Inc and Cargill Inc.
It was unclear how the administration could implement the ban on WeChat in mid-September. It could order Apple Inc and Alphabet Inc's Google to remove WeChat from their app store, or order the apps to stop offering access or updates to U.S. users.
Apple has spent years building China into a 44 billion U.S. dollars growth driver. In the second quarter of 2020, the company's revenue from the Chinese market accounted for over 15 percent of its total.
"We have worked with WeChat in the past to identify opportunities to work with restaurants that can get set up. WeChat actually recently started a series where they are working with Napa Valley to promote business there and promote tourism," said Darlene Chiu Bryant, executive director of GlobalSF.
Apple Inc., Ford Motor Co., Walmart Inc., and Walt Disney Co. were among those represented in the call in which they expressed their anxiety that competitiveness in China may be undermined by the order. As planned, the new presidential executive order will take effect next month, banning U.S. companies from "any transaction that is related to WeChat."
Some users said they planned to access WeChat in the U.S. using a virtual private network (VPN).
