Chinese President Xi Jinping is now in Washington DC, for his second stop on his state visit to the U.S. The trip from the west coast to the east coast is being marked by a shift in focus – from business to politics.

On the expected agenda is: cyber security, climate change and intellectual property protections. U.S. President Barack Obama is providing a low-key, more-relaxed setting for the two leaders to talk during a working dinner.
