The visit is linked to educational issues, but serves as another point of rapprochement between the two most important economies in the world
U.S. First Lady, Michelle Obama, is in Beijing on a week-long visit to China. According explained the presence in China is focused on education but which also try to iron out differences in the relations between the two countries.
Obama, invited by the Chinese President Xi Jinping wife, Peng Liyuan, is accompanied by her daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother, Marian Robinson.
The first lady plans to spend a day with Peng, who will hold a meeting, visit a school and the Forbidden City and share a dinner and attending a cultural show.
It will be the first time that Obama and Peng match, very popular in the country as it was famous as a folk singer before marrying Xi.
Chinese authorities have given an almost unknown relevance until now in China to the role of first lady.
Peng accompanied her husband last year on the tour Xi made to America, and that included a bilateral meeting with President Barack Obama in California, but his wife Michelle did not attend that meeting due to family commitments.
