rthday" to Kennedy, who turns 56 on Wednesday.
BEIJING Nike Air Force 1 High Uomo , Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- China's manufacturing sector expanded at a slower pace in January, official data showed Wednesday.


The country's manufacturing purchasing managers' index (PMI) came in at 51.3 this month, decelerating from 51.6 in December, according to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS). A reading above 50 indicates expansion, while a reading below reflects contraction.


The manufacturing PMI has stayed above the boom-bust line for 18 straight months.


Despite the slowdown, the index was the same with that of a year ago Nike Air Force 1 High Nere , suggesting the sector remained steady, NBS senior statistician Zhao Qinghe said.


Sub-indices for production and new orders went down slightly to 53.5 and 52.6, respectively, while sub-indices on raw material stock, employees and suppliers' delivery time were still lower than 50.

Just 10 days after arriving in Japan as the new U.S. ambassador, Caroline Kennedy is making a two-day visit to areas devastated by the 2011 tsunami to meet survivors and highlight America's commitment to supporting its ally.


The appointment of the daughter of President John F. Kennedy has been popular among Japanese, and it was no different at a temporary housing site in Minamisanriku Nike Air Force 1 Low Bianche , a city mostly destroyed by the tsunami.


Kennedy sat down for tea with women still living in tiny temporary housing units nearly three years after the disaster. Of 197 homes in their district, only nine were left standing. A project started by volunteers makes crocheted and knitted dish scrubbers shaped like sea creatures for sale, and Kennedy asked to buy some to give as Christmas gifts.


"Working on these things, we have to concentrate, or we drop stitches. That helps us to forget what we've lost," said Akiko Sugawara Nike Air Force 1 Alte Uomo , 64, one of about a half dozen residents who spent much of an hour chatting with Kennedy.


"Until I came here it was hard to really comprehend the extent of your losses. I admire your courage and resilience," Kennedy said.


Earlier Monday, Kennedy visited a park in the port city of Ishinomaki to see a wide vista of the tsunami-ravaged waterfront before heading to an elementary school, where students performed skits in English and sang "Happy Bic

Kennedy has so far stuck to carefully scripted events Nike Air Force 1 Alte Nere , mostly avoiding interviews as she adapts to a more public role after living a largely private life. Thousands of people turned out last week to see her ride in a horse-drawn carriage to present her diplomatic credentials to Emperor Akihito. The Japanese media have praised her low-key style, which many see as appropriate for a working mother who has had little to do with politics, let alone diplomacy, throughout her career.


She could become the most influential U.S. ambassador to Japan since Edwin Reischauer, who was President Kennedy's envoy 50 years ago, said Nancy Snow Nike Air Force 1 Alte Bianche , an American visiting professor at Keio University in Tokyo.


"She is primarily a soft-power ambassador who will play to her strengths in culture, education and shared values between the U.S. and Japan," Snow said. "She will highlight her many roles that resonate here: wife, mother, public service and humanitarian advocate."


The visit to the disaster region fits with those priorities.


Kennedy tried her hand at calligraphy and exchanged high-fives with schoolchildren as she toured the northeastern region, about 340 kilometers (210 miles) north of Tokyo. She brushed in black ink the Japanese character for the word "tomo Nike Air Force 1 Basse Uomo ," or friend. She then sat down to read "Where the Wild Things Are," the classic children's tale by American author Maurice Sendak, to a sixth-grade class.


Her visit was also a tribute to the U.S. "Tomodachi," or friendship, program that provided initial rescue .
