Gov. Perdue Taking Trip To China In October

Gov. Beverly Perdue will lead an international trade mission to China and Japan next month in hopes of boosting commerce between North Carolina and Asia.

A state Commerce Department spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday that Perdue, Commerce Secretary Keith Crisco and others would be making the trip.

More details were to be released later Wednesday. WRAL-TV in Raleigh said Perdue would be the first sitting North Carolina governor visit China in an official capacity.

Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler headed a delegation that went to China last month to find more markets for crops of North Carolina farmers.
