Beijing - June 1998
|Under our 1995 bilateral agreement with the Chinese on
enforcement of intellectual property rights, the U.S. engages in regular consultations
with the Chinese side several times a year. These pictures are from our most recent
trip, in June 1998.
|Here I am with Chairman Mao. This statue faces a twin across the intersection. Both are part of a university campus that we passed on the way back from our first round of consultations.|
|I'm told that much of old Peking looked like this, with low one- and two-story buildings and narrow alleyways. There's still a lot of this left, but it's rapidly being destroyed to make way for new construction.|
|Here's another old neighborhood in the process of being razed.|
|Building the new Beijing: Construction cranes are a familiar sight all over the city.|
