American publisher and television personality Martha Stewart is in Beijing this week to attend the Her Village International Forum, hosted and organized by Chinese fellow entrepreneur and media figure Yang Lan.

"I'm in China for business and an address on Saturday Her Village International Forum, sponsored by AOL and Yang Lan," Stewart tweeted Thursday night, although she arrived in Beijing earlier this week. The two-day annual event at Beijing's JW Marriott is organized to take a "holistic view of women's health and happiness," and "will bring together speakers to cover topics of body, mind, and outlook," according to materials provided by organiers Sun Media Group and New Alliance International Communications Group.

Ranked among Forbes' World's 100 Most Powerful Women, Yang's media presence and fluent English have given her opportunities to interview countless world figures including former US President Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger, and Sophie Marceau.

Along with Stewart, the forum will feature speakers including Li Yinhe, one of the Beijinger's 20 Most Interesting People in Beijing for 2013, Zhang Xin, president of SOHO China, and Pat Mitchell, the former president and CEO of the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) in the US.
