DAILY GUIDANCE AND PRESS SCHEDULE FOR
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2010

In the morning, the President and the Vice President will receive the Presidential Daily Briefing and the Economic Daily Briefing in the Oval Office. The President will then meet with senior advisors in the Oval Office. These meeting are closed press.

In the afternoon, the President will address the Business Roundtable's 2010 First Quarter Meeting at the St. Regis Hotel, 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 President will discuss the need to continue our recovery by giving small and large businesses incentives to hire new workers, and laying a foundation for long-term growth. This foundation is based on investments in innovation, education, and energy. It involves exporting more of our goods overseas and opening new markets. And it requires us to address the costs and risks that have prevented our economy from reaching its full potential: outdated financial regulations, crushing health care costs, and a growing deficit. Finally, he will talk about the necessity of putting partisan differences and Washington games aside to align around a common interest of addressing the enormous challenges we are facing. This event is pooled press.

After returning to the White House, the President will participate in a credentialing ceremony for foreign ambassadors in the Oval Office. This is closed press.

Later, the President and the Vice President will meet with Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke in the Oval Office. This meeting is closed press.
