His third trade mission to the country will include visits to Beijing and Shanghai.

The governor's office says preference will be given to companies in value-added agriculture, advanced manufacturing, biosciences, professional business services and energy. Businesses will be reimbursed after the trade mission for up to 30 percent of the travel, hotel and visa expenses for one company representative.

The trip is tentatively set for May 6-15, but that might change. The application deadline is Jan. 17.
