Chief executive officers of prominent companies have been invited for dinner tonight with President Barak Obama at the White House, reports Bloomberg. CEO’s invited include Verizon Communications Inc.’s (NYSE: VZ) Ivan Seidenberg, JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s (NYSE: JPM) Jamie Dimon, and American Express Co.’s (NYSE: AXP) Kenneth Chenault.

Others are David Cote of Honeywell International, Inc. (NYSE: HON), Antonio Perez of Eastman Kodak Co. (NYSE: EK), Xerox Corp.’s (NYSE: XRX) Ursula Burns, Indra Nooyi of PepsiCo, Inc. (NYSE: PEP), and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.’s (NYSE: WMT) Michael Duke.

The executives are in Washington for a meeting of the Business Roundtable. The meetings are a part of the Obama administration’s efforts to change perceptions that he is anti-business.

On Feb.9, Obama said in an interview that “The irony is, is that on the left we are perceived as being in the pockets of big business; and then on the business side, we are perceived as being anti-business.”
