Washington: US President Barack Obama will meet with chief executives from 12 companies including Goldman Sachs Group Inc’s Lloyd Blankfein and Yahoo Inc’s Marissa Mayer on Tuesday to discuss immigration and deficit reduction, according to a White House official.
“The president will continue his engagement with outside leaders on a number of issues—including immigration reform and how it fits into his broader economic agenda, and his efforts to achieve balanced deficit reduction,” the official told Reuters on Monday.
