Obama shifts G-8 from Chicago to Camp David
Obama shifts location of G-8 summit from hometown of Chicago to Camp David
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' The White House is moving the site of the upcoming G-8 economic summit from Chicago to the presidential retreat at Camp David in Maryland.

It's an unusual late location change for such a large international summit. The White House gave no immediate reason for the shift, saying only in a statement that Obama is inviting his fellow G-8 leaders to Camp David to "facilitate a free-flowing discussion."

The G-8 meeting will be held May 18-19. The White House says Obama still plans to host the NATO summit in Chicago on May 20-21.



The White House announced last summer that Obama would hold both summits in his hometown of Chicago.
