    During his week-long stay in Hong Kong, Mr. Bruce spent most of his time in discussion with U.S. Consul-General, David Osborn, and experienced "China-watchers" on his staff.

    Mr. Bruce has previously served as U.S. Ambassador to Britain, France, and West Germany, and headed the U.S. delegation at the Vietnam peace talks in Paris, France.
