President Obama at the East Asia Summit
06:33 PM EDT
President Obama is in Indonesia for the East Asia Summit. He's the first American president to attend the conference.
There, he's held bilateral meetings with the leaders of India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
He's announced that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will visit Burma to discuss that country's efforts to institute important, democratic reforms.
But much of his work was focused on helping to open up markets to American exports. On this trip, the President was able to announce business deals worth at least $25 billion between American companies and countries in the region.
Those transactions will help to support around 127,000 American jobs.
