LOS ANGELES (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown will welcome Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping to California with a tour of the Port of Los Angeles and events highlighting the economic and cultural ties between the world’s most populous nation and the U.S. state with the greatest population and largest economy.

The governor’s office released Brown’s schedule Wednesday to The Associated Press. Xi arrives Thursday for a two-day diplomatic stop after visiting Washington, D.C and Iowa.

Brown will welcome China’s next leader at Los Angeles International Airport, and they will then tour a shipping terminal at the port.

On Friday, Brown will address Chinese and American business leaders about trade. The governor is expected to meet privately with Xi in Los Angeles and then host a round-table that includes other governors and Chinese provincial leaders.
