After finishing a news conference a couple of hours ago, US President Barack Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao are attending the state-dinner with a number of US business leaders.

More than 200 guests are seated in three rooms: the State Dining Room, Blue Room and Red Room, before moving to the East Room for the evening's entertainment.

There are video monitors for those in the Blue and Red rooms to watch the dinner toasts.

This is Obamas' first state dinner where they've opted against bringing in a high-profile guest chef, instead putting White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford in charge.
