President Xi Jinping will host U.S. President Donald Trump in China for the first time on Wednesday.

Trump will be accompanied by a business delegation that includes the leaders of 28 U.S. companies, including Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.

China is laying out a red-carpet welcome for the Trump. In what Cui Tiankai, China’s ambassador to the U.S., has called a “state visit-plus,” Trump will be the first foreign leader in the history of the People’s Republic of China to be invited to dinner in the Forbidden City.
