1 Just before the APEC declaration was issued, there were reports that China and the US had intense debates regarding currency. Will that set the tone for Obama's four-day trip to China?

2 Many Chinese people worry that US actions appear different from their words. For example, Washington has pressed ahead with anti-dumping duty investigations on Chinese-imported seamless copper pipes and tubes one day ahead of Obama's visit to China. Are these legitimate worries?
