WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama plans a weeklong visit to China this month that includes meetings with China’s first lady and high school and university students.
It will be her first visit ever to the Asian economic powerhouse.
The White House says Mrs. Obama will travel from March 19-26. She will spend several days in the capital of Beijing, followed by stops in the central city of Xian (SHEE’-ahn) and the southwestern city of Chengdu. Her schedule includes a meeting with Peng Liyuan (puhng LEE’-yoo-en), the wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng).
Mrs. Obama will focus on education during stops at a university and a high school in Beijing and at a high school in Chengdu.
She will be accompanied by her daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother, Marian Robinson.
Update: From Mooch’s blog post on WhiteHouse.gov:
During my trip, I’ll be visiting a university and two high schools in Beijing and Chengdu (which are two of China’s largest cities). I’ll be focusing in particular on the power and importance of education, both in my own life and in the lives of young people in both of our countries. I’ll also be visiting various historical and cultural sites in China, and I look forward to sharing with you the stories of the students I meet, as well as the interesting facts I learn about Chinese history and culture.
