President Barack Obama will focus on trade, jobs, and national security during a 10-day trip to Asia, Oct. 6-16.
Four days after his party took a tough loss in midterm elections, Obama will arrive Saturday in Mumbai, India, to meet with business leaders and discuss trade deals.
He will then head to Indonesia, South Korea, and Japan.
The president is scheduled for seven one-on-one meetings with heads of state, four major speeches, a town hall, and two state dinners.
While in India, Obama will stay at the Taj Palace Hotel, one of the sites of the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attack.
He also plans to meet with some of the victims families.
