Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday evening delivered a policy speech at a welcome banquet at the Westin Hotel in Seattle, the first stop of his state visit to the United States.

The banquet was organized by the National Committee on United States-China Relations (NCUSCR) and the United States-China Business Council (USCBC).

There are 72 tables set at the banquet, reported the China Press, adding that some of the attendants serving the main table can speak fluent Chinese mandarin.

Xi arrived in Washington state early Tuesday for the talks that included how US and Chinese experts and businesses can cooperate on things like nuclear energy and smarter electricity use. He will head to Washington DC for a White House state dinner on Friday.
