On Tuesday afternoon, Mayor Rogero greeted students from the Beijing Institute of Graphic Communication. They are spending two weeks at the University of Tennessee this summer. During the meeting Mayor Rogero announced that she is planning on visiting China later this year. This will be an official government visit. The visit is being coordinated by the Department of Energy. This trip appears to be in the advanced planning stages. Mayor Rogero did ask the students for advice on where she should visit during her planned visit  to China.
