After docking, Commodore Donaldson and naval officials met with Major General Wang Deding and vice mayor of Shanghai Feng Guoqin.


During their stay, the Canadian officials will visit the guided missile frigate designed and produced by China. Chinese and Canadian military personnel will stage a friendly football match and a tug-of-war.
