Gov. Sam Brownback is leading a Kansas delegation this weekend on trip to China to look for opportunities to expand the state's economy.

Agriculture Secretary Dale Rodman and Commerce Secretary Pat George also will be part of the trade mission group, which leaves Saturday and will return Friday.

The Kansas leaders will meet with officials in Beijing, Henan Province and Guangdong Province, in addition to private business leaders who either do business already with Kansas or plan to do so in the future.

Brownback's office says Kansas has exported $96 million in goods to China this year through April 2013. Last year, Kansas exported more than $533 million in agricultural goods to the country, according to Euromonitor International data.
