As he prepares to depart on a week long 4-country excursion to Asia, President Obama will make remarks this morning in which he will address the nation's 10.2% unemployment rate and call for a White House summit on job creation to be held in December, called the "Forum on Jobs and Economic Growth," administration officials tell ABC News.

Invitees will be economists, CEOs, academics, small business owners, financial experts, and labor leaders "to talk about the best options for continuing to grow the economy and put Americans back to work," an administration official says. This summit has been kicked around as an idea by members of the president's economic team as a way to foster more ideas for economic growth.

Last week the president met with his economic recovery advisory board to discuss further job creating options, including more investment in infrastructure and tax cuts.
