Chinese leader wrapping up US visit in LA

Chinese leader wrapping up 4-day US visit with daylong series of events in Los Angeles By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping is wrapping up a four-day visit to the United States with events in Los Angeles.

Xi arrived Friday at a trade conference where he'll be joined later by American counterpart Joe Biden. Scheduled events also include a luncheon and school visit to meet children learning Mandarin.

They'll end the day with a governor's forum at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

China's soon-to-be leader met with California Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday and toured a terminal at the giant Port of Los Angeles.

The harbor visit was a reminder of China's huge footprint at the busiest port in the United States. Nearly 60 percent of the imports moving through the Port of Los Angeles come from China.
