President Xi's choice of Seattle as the first stop of his state visit is being interpreted by many as being about economic relationships.

 

Seattle, the biggest city in Washington state--the largest exporting state to China. It is the commercial, cultural and trade hub that serves as a link between the broader US market and the Asia-Pacific.

 

The city is also home to several world-class high tech companies like PC maker Microsoft , e-commerce firm Amazon, and aircraft producer Boeing, earning its name of a second US technology center after the Silicon Valley. Some other Seattle-based firms such us coffee shop franchise Starbucks, see China as one of their biggest overseas markets. The coming meeting between business leaders from these companies and others with their Chinese counterparts, will be one of the highest level of its kind in recent history.

 

The Chinese president will make a visit to the Boeing plant in Seattle, earlier reports say Boeing may be about to announce the establishment of a completion and delivery center in China -- that would be the first time such a facility has been set up outside of the US.
