The meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Barack Obama at the White House later this month would primarily focus on economic issues, a senior US administration official has said.

"I think this will be a visit that is very focussed on economic issues, what the US and India can do together to generate economic growth," the official said yesterday, at a media briefing.

The Prime Minister is scheduled to visit Washington for a day on September 27 for a meeting with Obama at the White House and the logistics are still being worked out.

Last month, National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon during a visit to Washington had exuded confidence of a successful visit by the Prime Minister.

The US said the Obama-Singh 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 two countries.
