Brown Leads Trade Delegation To China

California Governor Jerry Brown will lead a trade and investment delegation of 75 members on a one-week visit to China beginning next Wednesday.
Brown and the delegation will visit Shanghai next Friday when the California-China Trade & Investment Office will reopen after a similar one closed in 2003. The office is to be funded with $1 million in private-sector funds raised by the Bay Area Council, a business group in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Brown’s stops in China also include Beijing, Nanjing, Guangzhou and Shenzhen.
On Thursday, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said he had secured a $100,000 donation in his ongoing trade trip to China. The donation will be used to retrofit Chinatown’s Tung Wah Hospital, which is also called San Francisco Chinese Hospital. Qiu Yuanping, director of the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council, announced the donation earlier this week at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing.
