Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping is on his way to the United States for an official visit from Monday Friday. The trip is aimed at forging a consensus between the two nations, building a Sino-US partnership on the basis of "mutual respect" and "mutual benefit".

Xi will meet President Barack Obama at the White House on Tuesday. Also on the schedule are meetings with Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and leaders of both houses of Congress.

On Wednesday, Xi is set to make a policy speech in Washington at an event co-sponsored by the U.S.-China Business Council. Afterwards, Xi will head to Iowa, a state he visited as a young provincial official in 1985.

The Vice President’s trip comes amid a surge in U.S. agricultural exports to China. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, China’s imports of U.S. grains have surged nearly 78 percent compared to the year before.
