LAS VEGAS -- Governor Brian Sandoval today met with members of the Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce to discuss his upcoming trade mission to the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of Korea.

At a luncheon at the Greenland Supermarket, Sandoval spoke about his goal for the mission which includes identifying opportunities for Nevada companies to export their products and services to growing Asian markets, and encouraging Chinese and South Korean investment in Nevada.

“The timing couldn’t be better for a Nevada trade mission to Asia,” Gov. Sandoval said. “China’s growing influence in our global economy, and the recent implementation of the Korean Free Trade Agreement, provide our state with unique opportunities to advance our economic diversification and foreign direct investment.”

Sandoval was joined by the Director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development Steve Hill; President of the Las Vegas Asian Chamber, Dr. Terry Wong; and members of the trade mission business delegation.

The trade mission to the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of Korea, Sept. 15-26, 2012, is the first of its kind in Nevada’s history as it is the first Governor-led trade mission from Nevada to both countries.

Nevada state and business delegates will seek to establish mutually beneficial relationships that will aid the state as it diversifies the economy and increases foreign direct investment.
