Michigan agriculture director to lead trade trip to China

LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Michigan plans to step up efforts to connect food and agriculture companies in the state with Chinese buyers during a November trade trip.

Officials announced Thursday that Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Director Jamie Clover Adams will lead a trade mission to China from Nov. 9-14.

Stops are planned in Shanghai and Shenzhen. The trip will include one-on-one meetings, retail tours and briefings with U.S. Department of Agriculture officials. Clover Adams notes that China is among the largest export markets for Michigan food and agriculture products.

Michigan officials are accepting applications from those interested in participating in the trip.
