President Xi, first lady launch charm offensive in US
    2015-09-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    PRESIDENT Xi Jinping’s busy stop on the U.S. West Coast was the first leg of a weeklong trip to the United States and offered him a chance to highlight China’s cooperation with U.S. companies before he headed to Washington.

    The Chinese leader started Wednesday by publicly assuring U.S. business leaders that he is making it easier to invest in China, and then attended a private session about intellectual property protection.

    Xi later visited Microsoft’s campus in Seattle where he was greeted by co-founder Bill Gates, CEO Satya Nadella and other top executives. He was then led to a gathering of American and Chinese CEOs and was greeted, among others, by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who spoke to the Chinese leader in Mandarin.

    Late Wednesday, Xi sampled a bit of American teen culture, visiting Lincoln High School in Tacoma, south of Seattle, along with first lady Peng Liyuan.

    They watched the school’s football team practice before addressing students in a packed auditorium. Xi urged the students to carry on the spirit of ping pong diplomacy that 40 years ago was so important to boosting U.S.-China relations.

    “Ping pong balls are small. Much smaller than the American football,” Xi said, as the auditorium erupted in laughter.

    Xi toured Boeing’s Everett, Washington, factory where Boeing builds its largest aircraft, and was shown a demonstration on board a 787 Dreamliner, which is popular with Chinese airlines.

    As her husband headed to Boeing, Peng focused attention on the global health problems of HIV infection and tobacco use during a visit to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  (SD-Agencies)
