It is wonderful to be here at this university. What a special place. I just looked around a little bithere, it's a gorgeous, gorgeous place. I want to congratulate you for going to this magnificentuniversity here.
Now, the last time I was here in China was five years ago, and then I was promoting my movies.They had a movie festival here, the Arnold Schwarzenegger Movie Festival. I remember theyshowed all my movies for a week--which was a rarity, may I remind you--and they also showedthe movies on television. But we also were here to promote special Olympics, which is anorganization that helps people with mental disabilities, so I was here for both reasons.
But this time I'm here as the governor of the great state of California. I'm here representing thepeople of California, and we're here on a trade mission to see how we can do more businesswith China and to help each other, because both California is a very fast growing state, andChina is a very fast growing country, and there are a lot of things that we can do for oneanother.
But I didn't want to miss the opportunity to come here today and to talk with the youngpeople; as a matter of fact, to the brightest young people of China. And this is why it is sogreat to be here at the Tsinghua University, and I'm honored that I was invited here.
Now, I read a little bit about the history of Tsinghua, and I learned that actually this schooloriginally prepared students to attend universities in America.
Now, I also know that since the attack on our World Trade Centers it has become more andmore difficult to go to the universities in America because you need to fill out all kinds ofpaperwork now and you have to get visas, and it's very complicated, and you have to wait amuch longer period of time to go over there. But let me tell you, things are improving already.
