President Xi meeting President Obama

China’s President Xi and First Lady Peng Visit U.S. on Official State Tour


President Xi of China completed his first state visit to the United States this week, a whirlwind seven-day tour that started in Seattle, then headed to Washington, D.C. for meetings with President Obama and a formal state dinner, followed by a trip to New York where Xi gave a speech at the biggest gathering of world leaders at the United Nations. From the tour and subsequent meetings, the U.S. and China agreed to several significant actions to deepen the relationship between the two countries and to further promote peace and stability for the regions. Both sides commemorated the 70th anniversary of the United Nations and reaffirmed their commitment to the UN Charter. China also committed to significant climate actions in a joint statement with the U.S. on climate change. China will launch a national carbon trading program covering all key industrial sectors that will work toward emissions reductions goals. China has also committed to improve its dispatch policy for renewable power, and to increasing the utilization of clean energy resources. China is also aggressively controlling and phasing out its HFC emissions, affirming that 50 percent of the new buildings built in China’s urban areas will be green buildings, and cleaning up public transportation methods. The two countries will continue to work together on reforms, monitoring and execution of these measures. In Washington, D.C., China’s First Lady Peng Liyuan, together with First Lady Michelle Obama, announced the name of the National Zoo’s newest giant panda. The two first ladies selected the name “Bei Bei,” which means “precious treasure” in Chinese, for the month-old male cub.
