China To Greet Obama With Shanghai Disney

In addition to having hundreds of schoolchildren wave vivid red flowers to welcome United States President Barack Obama at the airport for his first state visit in mid-November, the Chinese government has also prepared a huge gift for this very special friend -- a $3.6 billion Disney theme park contract.

Shanghai Mayor Han Zheng said Sunday that the city government will unveil its decision, as soon as this week, to build Walt Disney ( DIS - news - people )'s first theme park in mainland China.
