  • Description

    The touring table tennis team of the People's Republic of China met the United States public for the first time on Thursday (13 April), when they went on a tour of the giant Chrysler automobile plant in Detroit.

    The 14 players are repaying a visit to China a year ago by a U.S. table tennis team, which established the era of "ping pong diplomacy". This eventually led to President Nixon's visit to peking in February.

    As part of their 16-day tour of the U.S. the Chinese team will attend an official reception at the White House in Washington to meet President Nixon.
