Schedule for the Week of September 21, 2015

On Monday, the President will attend meetings at the White House.

On Tuesday, the President, the First Lady, the Vice President, and Dr. Biden will greet His Holiness Pope Francis on his arrival at Joint Base Andrews in the United States.

On Wednesday, the President and the First Lady will welcome Pope Francis to the White House. During the visit, the President and the Pope will continue the dialogue, which they began during the President’s visit to the Vatican in March 2014, on their shared values and commitments on a wide range of issues. These issues include caring for the marginalized and the poor; advancing economic opportunity for all; serving as good stewards of the environment; protecting religious minorities and promoting religious freedom around the world; and welcoming and integrating immigrants and refugees into our communities. The President looks forward to continuing this conversation with the Holy Father during his first visit to the United States as Pope.

On Thursday, the President will host a private dinner for Xi Jinping, the President of the People’s Republic of China.

On Friday, the President and the First Lady will welcome President Xi and Madame Peng Liyuan to the White House for an official State Visit. This reciprocates President Obama’s State Visit to China in November 2014. President Xi’s visit will present an opportunity to expand U.S.-China cooperation on a range of global, regional, and bilateral issues of mutual interest, while also enabling President Obama and President Xi to address areas of disagreement constructively.

On Sunday, the President will travel to New York, NY for the United Nations General Assembly.
