Arnie To Visit China & Hong Kong

" California Gov Arnold Schwarzenegger will travel to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong from Nov 14 to 19 to promote his state, officials of his press office said Tuesday.

He will market California agriculture, encourage tourism to California, discuss intellectual property rights and promote business investment in California, they said. Schwarzenegger, a household name in China, will start his trip in Beijing, where he will meet with government officials, speak at Tsinghua University and attend a Special Olympics event."


Schwarzenegger Takes Public Questions

"Arnold Schwarzenegger, who calls himself the "people's governor" of California, took questions on Monday from members of the public not chosen by his staff -- a relatively rare event in a highly scripted ballot measure campaign.

During a live television appearance, the former actor and bodybuilder smoothly fielded polite questions on four ballot measures in a special election he has called for November 8."
