We'll start with a little shame-less plug--as General Electric Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Immelt will be on "Squawk Box." He'll talk about GE's (parent company of CNBC) guidance that came out Tuesday. The company says it should see profit growth of about 13% in 2007. That's less than the estimate of about 15% for this year--but still above analyst estimates. You can also see Immelt on cnbc.com.
CNBC's Carl Quintanilla is in China--following the big American delegation there for high level talks. He'll be on "Squawk Box" to give us the latest.
