Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon says he has closed a deal with another Chinese province to import products from Missouri.
Nixon said Thursday the government of Zhejiang Province has agreed to import $100 million of Missouri products over the coming years. The province also agreed to help facilitate an additional $100 million of investment in Missouri businesses.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon says a Chinese province has agreed to increase its imports from Missouri by $100 million over the next three years.
Nixon's announcement Wednesday about the Hebei province came as part a weeklong trade trip to China. The governor previously announced that a new agreement with the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade would increase imports of Missouri goods by $1 billion over three years.

The Boeing Phantom Ray unmanned airborne system (UAS), just one of the models of aircraft Boeing produces, during an unveiling ceremony in St. Louis on May 10, 2010. Reports state China will announce deals today including one to buy 200 Boeing airplanes.
A senior administration official says China will announce deals Wednesday to purchase $45 billion in U.S.
exports, including a $19 billion agreement to buy 200 Boeing airplanes, according to the Associated Press.
The official says the deal will create 235,000 jobs in the U.S.
It is important to note, however, that these planes will be commercial aircraft. Moreover, the St. Louis division of Boeing, which produces military aircraft, is unlikely to benefit directly from today's deal.
