Obama will meet with business owners in Panama City



President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, in Panama City Saturday, will hold a roundtable discussion with business owners, officials and Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, the White House formally announced today.

Obama previously planned to spend the weekend in Panama City privately with his family. The White House said the roundtable will help generate ideas for the long-rang Gulf Coast Restoration Plan, which the president called for before the BP oil disaster. Afterward, he'll address reporters.
