The Presidential Planner Abroad

Nov 17, 2009 7:27pm

From Sunlen Miller: During his second day in Beijing President Obama will first continue formal meetings and sit down one-on-one with the President and Premier Wen Jiabao of China. The two leaders will then have a working lunch. In the afternoon President Obama will tour the Great Wall of China. Dubbed the “most representative” part of the Great Wall and the most well preserved – the President will visit the Badaling section of the wall. Originally built during the early Ming Dynasty to guard a key pass northwest of Beijing, the Badaling has an average altitude of over 3,282 feet. Mr. Obama – on day two of his tour of China – said that sites like the Forbidden City which he visited on Tuesday, and the Great Wall are a “testament to the greatness of Chinese history.” In the evening the President will fly from Beijing to Seoul, Korea – the last stop in his four country tour of Asia. -From Sunlen Miller
