President Obama ends the week Friday with foreign affairs, welcoming the leader of one of the world's fastest growing countries.
India Prime Minister Manmohan Singh meets with Obama and Vice President Biden in the Oval Office around mid-day.
The meeting "will highlight India's role in regional security and stability and provide an opportunity for the two leaders to chart a course toward enhanced trade, investment, and development cooperation between the United States and India," the White House schedule says.
Singh visited Washington in 2009, while Obama traveled to India in 2010.
Obama will also be keeping an eye on Congress, where a budget impasse could lead to a government shutdown next week.
