Gov. Sandoval heading to China for trade mission in October


Gov. Brian Sandoval will be headed to China late next month in the second trade mission he’s taken there since assuming office.

The Republican governor is leading the trip in his capacity as president of the Council of State Governments. Representatives from Alaska, Idaho, Minnesota, Kansas and Delaware are also coming on the mission.

His office said Thursday that he’ll focus on increasing foreign investment in Nevada.

Sandoval visited China on official business in 2012. The latest trip comes on the heels of a three-week trade mission he took to five European countries this summer.

The governor also announced that he and governors from Washington, California, Iowa, Michigan and Oregon had signed an accord this week with Chinese representatives. The agreement aims to expand the use of renewable energy.
