China reassures USA about future trade relationships.


Chinese President Hu Jintao joked with his hosts at the Boeing factory in Seattle on the second day of a state visit. Boeing aircraft already make up more than 60 percent of the chinese national fleet and, earlier this month, China bought a further 80 planes from Boeing worth 4.6 billion dollars. Hu Jintao has carefully planned his first official US visit by stopping in Washington State, which has a booming trade relationship with China thanks to Boeing and Microsoft. The US is concerned about its 200 billion dollar trade deficit with China.
