Students from Washington state meet Chinese premier

High school students flew to San Francisco from Tacoma, Washington to present a gift to Chinese Premier Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan, reports CGTN.

The presentation of a painting done by the choir from Lincoln High School was part of a program organized by the U.S.-China Youth and Student Exchange Association. Some of these students have already visited China as part of a cultural exchange.

“I just remember how kind and how inviting everyone was everywhere that we went,” said Rigel Bruce Adams. “I met so many people as we toured different schools and they were so wonderful and so different as well.”

The premier himself along with his wife visited Lincoln High in 2015.

The students also marked Peng’s birthday with a special song.

According to CGTN, China is prepared to invite 50,000 young Americans to China for exchange and study programs over the next 5 years.
