California Governor Jerry Brown is leading a trade and investment mission to Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou, China from April 8 to 15, 2013 in an effort to increase direct investment in California, build sales by California businesses and strengthen ties between the world’s second and ninth largest economies. Traveling as part of his delegation will be Singpoli Group CEO Kin Hui and William Chu. Delegates will visit with high ranking officials, tour California companies and projects in China, and lead events to promote California to potential Chinese investors. Governor Brown intends to open the first of at least two planned trade offices in China.
