Obama to Visit China in November, Focus on Environment, Energy

From Bloomberg:

President Barack Obama will make his first official visit to China in November, seeking to foster collaboration on the environment, renewable energy and regional security, the new U.S. ambassador to China said.

“If we can tackle all of these, we will be able to take U.S.-China relations to new heights,” Jon Huntsman said today in Beijing at his first press meeting since arriving in the Chinese capital yesterday.

Obama accepted an invitation from Chinese President Hu Jintao in April when the two met in London at a Group of 20 summit called to deal with the global financial crisis. He is also scheduled to attend the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Singapore in November.
