Guangdong Communist Party Secretary Wang Yang embarked on a fact-finding trip to Sichuan province and Chongqing municipality yesterday, local media reported. Giving no details on whether Wang would meet his Chongqing counterpart, Bo Xilai, the Guangzhou Daily said the two delegations would sign a strategic co-operation agreement during his four-day visit. The report also said the Guangdong delegation would take part in some activities involving economic and trade communication and co-operation between the two economic heavyweights. Wang and senior Guangdong officials, including vice-governor Huang Yunlong and Guangzhou party chief Zhu Xiaodan , will also reportedly check on the progress of a project sponsored by the province following last year's earthquake. Inter-provincial visits by regional leaders have become routine. In April last year, Wang Hongju, the outgoing Chongqing mayor, visited Guangdong, and Bo has led groups to other provinces.
