      President of Cuban Parliament Meets with Local Authorities in Shanghai

      Havana, June 7 (acn) - The President of the Cuban Parliament, Ricardo
      Alarcón de Quesada, met on Wednesday with local authorities in the
      Chinese city of Shanghai during the third day of an official visit to
      the Asian nation.

      According to Prensa Latina news agency, Alarcón met with Shanghai's top
      official, the secretary of the Municipal Committee of China's Communist
      Party (CCP), Xi Jinping, who briefed the Cuban delegation on the
      economic growth of this important city where more than 17 million
      people live.

      Jinping, who is also a member of the CCP's Central Committee, gave
      Alarcón details of the city's preparations for the Universal Exhibition
      in 2010.

      The Cuban delegation also visited the downtown district of Putong,
      where the most modern buildings of Shanghai can be found, and the
      television tower, also known as the Pearl of the East, which is the
      third tallest in the world with a height of 468 meters.

      China is the first stop of an Asian tour that will also take Alarcón
      and his accompanying delegation to Vietnam and Laos.
