Positioned as China’s next president, Vice President Xi Jinping is traveling to the U.S. at the invitation of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, accompanied by the business delegation, in an effort to help enhance diplomatic ties and develop business and professional relationships in the Southern California area.
