Governor Jerry Brown is taking his long planned trip to China this week to open a trade office, and he's bringing 75 delegates with him. The group includes representatives from political agencies and businesses across the state. All participants had to pay $10,000 plus airfare.

Rufus Jeffris is with the Bay Area Council, which helped plan the trip. He says being on a trade mission with the Governor buys delegates credibility in government oriented China.

  "A lot of decisions, a lot of things that happen there work through the government," he says. "So there's a lot of importance attached to having that official status."  

Delegates will meet with Chinese officials and potential investors. California hasn't had a formal trade presence in China in more than a decade.
