China’s Xi Makes Public Appearance

Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping appeared in public for the first time in two weeks, ending an absence that fueled speculation about his health and prospects for succeeding Hu Jintao as the nation’s leader.

Xi visited an exhibition in the China Agricultural University in Beijing at around 9:30 a.m. today, according to the official Xinhua News Agency, which published photographs of the 59-year-old smiling and walking. While attending activities to mark the National Science Popularization Day, Xi spoke about the need for China to increase food safety awareness and consumer satisfaction, Xinhua said.
