California governor kicks off Mexico trade mission

Posted: Updated:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown travels to Mexico for three days of meetings starting Monday aimed at increasing investments in California, promoting university exchanges and forming environmental partnerships.

The trip, which is being organized by the California Chamber of Commerce, includes a delegation of more than 100 state government, business, economic development, investment and policy leaders.

Brown plans to begin his visit by meeting with the governor of the state of Mexico. He will sign economic, environmental and education agreements while visiting various government and business officials.

About 10 members of Brown's administration will accompany him, along with five state senators and 10 Assembly members. All the lawmakers are Democrats except Assemblyman Rocky Chavez, R-Oceanside.

Brown met with Mexico's secretary of foreign affairs in Sacramento on Wednesday ahead of the trade mission.
