President Hu and his wife Liu Yongqing enjoyed a tour of Urbanhof farm, founded by the Haas family. Hu was shown the cows’ shed and the milking room, and asked about the operations of the farm, which produces over 6 hundred tons of milk annually.

President Hu commented that China could draw great experience from the farm’s management model and environmentally friendly development pattern.

Later in the day, Hu also visited the Salzburg residence of world-renowned composer Mozart. He listened to musical performances of some of Mozart’s classical masterpieces, and expressed hopes that China and Austria could strengthen cultural exchanges.

On Tuesday evening, Hu attended a welcome dinner held in his honour by the Salzburg Governor and City Mayor.

President Hu flew into Salzburg from Vienna on Monday evening. During his stay in Vienna, he paid a visit to the Austrian National Library, accompanied by Austrian President Heinz Fischer.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Austria.

Following his trip to Austria, Hu will fly to France to attend the G20 Summit, slated for November 3rd to 4 in Cannes, France.
