WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama says new exchange programs with Muslim countries will bring their business people and "social entrepreneurs" to the US to learn and to share their expertise.

Obama said Monday that the programs will include allowing Muslim women in the technology field to come for internships and professional development, while high-tech leaders from Silicon Valley will share their expertise in the Middle East, Turkey and southeast Asia.

Obama spoke at summit on entrepreneurship, organized to help improve relations between the US and Muslim countries.

Obama also announced that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan will hold a similar summit next year.
