Chinese President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng) got a quick view of America's Last Frontier.

Xi landed in Alaska for a refueling stop following his meeting with President Donald Trump earlier Friday in Florida.

Alaska Gov. Bill Walker welcomed Xi during a ceremony on the tarmac at the Anchorage airport. They then set off on a short sightseeing tour of Alaska's largest city.

Later, they planned a business meeting and dinner at a downtown Anchorage hotel before Xi returned to the airport for the 4,000-mile trip to Beijing.

China is Alaska's leading trade partner, buying more than $1 billion in Alaska products in 2016. It's a two-way street, with Alaska's imports from China only lagging behind trade with neighboring Canada..
