Statement by the Press Secretary on the Visit of Brazilian President Rousseff

On April 9, President Obama will host President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil for meetings at the White House as part of the Leaders’ on-going dialogue regarding the growing partnership between the United States and Brazil across a wide range of issues.  The Presidents will have the opportunity to follow up on progress made under the three presidential dialogues launched during President Obama’s March 2011 visit to Brazil – the Strategic Energy Dialogue, the Economic and Financial Dialogue, and the Global Partnership Dialogue.  These meetings will also provide the two Leaders the opportunity to again meet with the U.S.-Brazil CEO Forum and continue efforts to grow commercial, economic, education, and innovation ties between our two countries.

President Obama looks forward to discussing cooperation on a host of other bilateral, regional, and multilateral issues, especially as he looks towards his participation in the Summit of the Americas in Colombia in April and the G-20 in Mexico in June.
