China's Number Two visits ITER

-Myriam Jacobs

Top Chinese legislator Wu Bangguo, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People Congress (NPC) and "number two" in the hierarchy of the People's Republic of China, paid an eight-day visit to France last week.

Chairman Wu Bangguo was greeted in Paris by French Prime Minister Fillon and then proceeded to Bordeaux, Lyons and Marseille.

The aim of this exceptionally-long visit was to develop cooperation between Chinese and French regions.

ITER, which Chairman Wu had contributed to "set in motion" when the NPC ratified the ITER Agreement in 2006,  was an important stopover in his official visit.
