(CNN) - President Barack Obama will meet with executives from leading technology companies Tuesday to discuss progress made with the problem-plagued HealthCare.gov website, White House officials tell CNN.
The meeting will also address national security, the controversial NSA surveillance programs, and economic impacts of unauthorized intelligence disclosures. Many tech executives have expressed serious concern about the scope of the National Security Agency's programs.
Obama will discuss ways the administration can partner with the tech sector to further grow the economy, create jobs, and address issues around income inequality and social mobility.
The President will be meeting with at least 15 tech executives, among then Apple CEO Tim Cook, Twitter's Dick Costolo, Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt, and Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg.
