"The CEO participants will discuss opportunities for new partnerships between businesses in the United States and India, how to promote investment and job growth and will provide inputs to the US government on concerns of business leaders of the two countries," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said in a media statement.

Formally announcing the list of American corporate leaders in the CEO Forum, the White House said it would be co-chaired by David M Cote of Honeywell. Other US corporate leaders in this list are Louis Chnevert of United Technologies Corporation, Richard T Clark (Merck & Co), Jamie Dimon (JPMorgan Chase & Co), Paul Hanrahan (AES Corporation), Paul Jacobs (Qualcomm), Ellen Kullman (DuPont), Andrew Liveris (Dow Chemical Company), Terry McGraw (McGraw Hill Companies), Indra Nooyi (PepsiCo), Vikram Pandit (Citigroup) and Mike Splinter (Applied Materials).

The US India CEO Forum was launched in 2005 and has held meetings in both the US and India in the past.

US International Economic Affairs deputy national security advisor Mike Froman and India Planning Commission deputy chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia serve as the government co-chairs of the forum.

Senior government officials expected to be present at the forum meeting include National Economic Council chairman Larry Summers, US treasury secretary Tim Geithner, commerce secretary Gary Locke, United States trade representative Ron Kirk and US Economic Energy and Agricultural Affairs State under secretary Robert Hormats, the White House said.
