09:01, February 08, 2012

WASHINGTON, Feb. 7 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama will host his Brazilian counterpart Dilma Rousseff at the White House in April to discuss an array of issues, the White House said on Tuesday.

It described the meetings slated for April 9 as part of the two presidents' ongoing dialogue regarding the "growing partnership" between the two countries 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," the White House said in a statement.

In addition, the two presidents will have an opportunity to meet again with the U.S.-Brazil CEO Forum and "continue efforts to grow commercial, economic, education, and innovation ties between our two countries," the statement said.

"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," said the statement.
