China’s U.S. Buying Spree Begins in L.A. – Evelyn Iritani

From the Los Angeles Times (link):

For the staff at the Universal Hilton Hotel, the scene was business as usual: security guards barking into their headphones, holding back angry photographers and frustrated reporters trying to sweet-talk their way into the inner sanctum.

But the person everyone was fighting to see ” a diminutive, gray-haired woman in an orange jacket and dark pants ” was hardly your run-of-the-mill celebrity.

On the other side of the velvet rope, Chinese Vice Premier Wu Yi was discussing the very unsexy topic of U.S.-China trade and investment. All the attention could be explained by the goodie bag she had brought to the party: a $15-billion shopping list for U.S. telecommunications equipment, high-tech products and farm goods.
