Walker said: “I am honored to host President Xi and Madame Peng during their visit to Alaska.

“China is one of our largest trading partners, and I am eager to tell President Xi about the abundance of Alaska’s resource development opportunities. We have tremendous potential in our oil and gas, tourism, fish, air cargo and mineral resource industries.”
