Mr Swallow Yan of the Chinese Association of Iowa holds a t-shirt in front of the house where Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping will meet with local residents Roger and Sarah Lande in Muscatine, Iowa February 15, 2012. Xi, 58, is poised to become China's next leader following a decade in which it has risen to become the world's second largest economy while the United States has fought two wars and endured the deepest and longest recession since the Great Depression that sapped its resources.
