BEIJING, Jan. 22 (Xinhua) -- The following are highlights of Chinese President Hu Jintao's activities in the United States on Friday, the last day of his four-day state visit to the country.

-- President Hu visited Walter Payton College Preparatory High School in downtown Chicago on Friday.

The high school established the only Confucius Institute in the United States that is housed in a K-12 (Kindergarten through 12th grade) environment and which primarily focuses on the Chinese language and cultural education programs.

-- President Hu on Friday visited an exhibition of companies operating in the U.S. Midwest.

Most companies present at the exhibition, which was held in Chicago's suburban city of Woodridge, are Chinese-funded ones.

During the visit, Hu encouraged Chinese companies operating in the United States to play a bigger role in promoting economic and trade cooperation between the two countries.

The success of Chinese companies in the United States is a specific example of the China-U.S. mutually beneficial cooperation, he added.

The operation of these companies not only yields profits for themselves, but adds momentum to economic development in the U.S. Midwest.

-- President Hu left Chicago for China on Friday after meeting local officials and visiting the exhibition of companies and the local high school.
