First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama will be spending a week in China in March, according to Yahoo! News on Monday. Mrs. Obama will be traveling without the president to meet with China’s first lady, Peng Liyuan who is the wife of President Xi Jinping, as well as some high school and university students. This will be the First Lady’s first visit to China.

The White House’s blog announced the plans for the First Lady’s trip, which will occur from March 19 to March 16, and claimed that her visit to China is important in that it is the most populous country in the world – with more than 1.3 billion people.

The visit will include several days in Beijing, the capital of China, as well as visits to Xian in central China and Chengdu which is in the southwest portion of the nation.

Michelle Obama will focus on the importance of education during her trip. She has recently encouraged young people in the United States to pursue a college education – including some of the nation’s economically disadvantaged persons.

It is not the first time Mrs. Obama is traveling outside the United States alone. Previously, she has gone to Mexico and the countries of South Africa and Boswana in Africa.
