Virginia Governor To Discuss Trade Mission

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Bob McDonnell has schedule a briefing from Tokyo, the last stop on his globe-trotting trade tour.
 
The governor's office says McDonnell will update his efforts to expand Virginia's export reach during a news conference Thursday. The trip has already yielded deals on soybean exports to Japan, the opening of a trade office in Shanghai and a wine and commodity exchange with China.
 
McDonnell is winding up the 16-day job creation and economic development marketing mission. Besides Japan, he's made stops in California and China.
 
McDonnell has led several similar trade missions since taking office in January 2010. Officials say they have resulted in more than half a billion dollars in capital investments, nearly 1,400 jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars in new agricultural exports.
