Gov. Jay Inslee plans to go on an overseas trade mission to China next month.
Current plans call for him to leave for Tokyo on Nov. 9 for a short stop. He plans a longer stay in China with visits to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. He’s slated to be the keynote speaker at a biotechnology convention in Beijing on Nov. 12.
A trade delegation of about 40 people will also be on the trip. Inslee’s travel costs will be covered by the Host Fund of Washington, a non profit.. The Trade Development Alliance of Greater Seattle handles the fund’s administrative and support functions, said David Postman, a spokesman for the governor.
The China Daily interviewed Inslee about the upcoming trip.
