He said his administration had set a goal of doubling US exports over the next five years to create more jobs back home."It is absolutely clear that the key to creating new jobs is opening markets for American goods made by American workers.
"And that is why on the trip I am undertaking, I will be talking about opening up additional markets in places like India," said Obama, close on the heels of Democrats' recent drubbing in US mid-term elections, largely attributed to the discontent over his government's handling of unemployment and economy.

He said focusing on the future, rather than on the "next election" was key to the success of the American future.
