He kicked off his tour with meeting President Xi Jinping on March 2, and visited the icon of Beijing — the Forbidden City. On his second day in China, he officially opened the Great Festival of Creativity in Shanghai. In the afternoon, he attended the China’s premiere of Paddington in Shanghai Film Museum.Dali
