ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports:
President Obama will start his day by making a statement on the economy, tax cuts and a meeting with CEOs at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in the morning.
The president then will hold a working meeting with business leaders at the Blair House to discuss ways to continue to "work together grow the economy, create jobs in the private sector and invest in American innovation and competitiveness."
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said that this is just one many “fairly regular intervals” that the president has met with CEOS over lunch to discuss a “whole range of ideas that are out there in terms of continuing our fragile recovery."
The goal, the White House said, is to drill down on the best way to move forward on accelerating job creation and making America more competitive in the 21st century.
Areas of discussions likely will include export promotion, ensuring the next generation has the skills to compete in a global market, investing in innovative areas with opportunity for growth including clean energy and technology, taking a serious approach to our medium- and long-term federal deficits, tax reform and a balanced approach to regulation.
