Antonio Villaraigosa, Los Angeles mayor, and Xi Jinping met in late May to discuss US-China relations. Discussions during the trip included expanding daily flights from China to Los Angeles and adding direct flights from second-tier Chinese cities (i.e. Chongqing & Chengdu). Xi referred to Los Angeles as the "epicenter" of the U.S.-China relationship.
