Flu prompts Chinese delegation to postpone Wichita trip

A delegation from Wuxi, China, has postponed a trip to Wichita, citing travel concerns about the swine flu outbreak, the city of Wichita said in a news release today.

The group had been scheduled to arrive May 5 and tour local companies May 6. The visit was to include the signing of a letter of intent about an EcoPartnership between the two cities. The trip is expected to be rescheduled.

A separate group from Kaifent, China, still is scheduled to arrive in Wichita on Friday, the release said. The delegation from the Peoples Congress is set to visit public facilities and participate in River Festival.
