Obama's life story is really encouraging to young Chinese people. I think this will attract more Chinese to study in the US. I hope these students will finally come back to China to contribute to this nation's development.

I think Obama's visit will promote education and technology exchanges. I hope there is greater access to share knowledge on the Internet or somewhere else. Knowledge should have no boundaries.

Obama's visit will help people from both nations know more about each other. From (Richard) Nixon's (China) visit to now, I think our relations have been moving forward. But I really hope the US can uphold its commitments and not intervene any more in China's internal affairs.

Obama said the US would welcome more Chinese students. I think this shows his sincerity in promoting exchanges between the two countries. And this will surely be a boon to overseas study companies.

Obama's visit signifies Washington's goodwill to cooperate with China. There are always differences between China and the US, but the two have never given up any chance to cooperate.
