ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports:
Today, President Obama will address the Business Roundtable’s 2010 First Quarter Meeting at the St. Regis Hotel in Washington, DC where he will “lay out our vision for a more competitive America, where the interests of workers, businesses, and government are aligned around the common goal of ensuring a growing prosperity that is widely shared,” the White House says.
"We need to build an economy where we borrow less and produce more," the president will say, according to excerpts released by the White House. "We need an economy where we generate more jobs here at home and send more products overseas. We need to invest and nurture the industries of the future, and we need to train our workers to compete for those jobs."
The president will say that the answer is not about being "anti-business or pro-government; it’s about being pro-growth and pro-jobs."
After returning to the White House, the President will participate in a private credentialing ceremony for foreign ambassadors in the Oval Office.
Later in the afternoon, the President and the Vice President will meet with Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke in the Oval Office.
