The Governor Will Travel To Asia On A Trade Mission

Wednesday was the day when Oregon Governor Kate Brown made the announcements regarding the state’s upcoming trade mission to Asia. The purpose of this trip is to promote foreign investment and corporate expansion in the state.

As South Korea and Japan reopen their doors completely to tourists, traders, and business travellers, officials from both countries will be travelling there. Beginning this coming Friday and lasting until the 26th of October, Brown will be in charge of leading the mission.

She will be joined by other Oregon leaders who are representatives of many industries, including agriculture, tourism, higher education, apparel, technology, and manufacturing. Additionally, Brown will visit Oregon’s twin state in Japan, which is known as the Toyama Prefecture.

Oregon was one of just six states that saw positive export growth between 2019 and 2020 despite the epidemic that was going on.
