When President Barack Obama addresses top American CEOs on Wednesday morning, he will stress three areas that he believes the White House and the business community can work together on, according to the chairman of the president's Council of Economic Advisers.
"He'll be talking about how we can reform our tax system," Jason Furman told CNBC's "Squawk Box " on the sidelines of the Business Roundtable's meeting in Washington, D.C. The White House wants to explore ways to bring down corporate tax rates, while closing loopholes.
Furman said the second area of mutual interest is investing in ways to fix the nation's ailing infrastructure, which is "part of that tax reform."
The third area is expanding global trade, he said. "Those are three areas we can really work with the business community to help our economy."
Furman also said, "The economy is doing really well right now," noting that the pace of job growth is "picking up."
