Governor Easley Meets With Chinese Minister

Gov. Mike Easley has met with a Chinese commerce minister and other government and business officials to discuss the potential for increased investment by China in North Carolina.

Assistant Commerce Minister Chen Jian and his delegation met
Easley on Friday at the Executive Mansion, along with state
Commerce Department officials.

North Carolina is already home to the executive headquarters of
Chinese-based Lenovo Group Ltd. following the company's acquisition
of IBM's personal computing division.

The U.S. Commerce Department says North Carolina exports to
China have more than tripled since 2002, reaching more than $1
billion in 2006.
