LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has traveled to Montreal for his first foreign trade mission of the year.

Snyder met Monday with Montreal’s mayor and Quebec’s minister overseeing sustainable development and environmental issues. He also met with executives from Caisse de Depot, a leading institutional fund manager.

Snyder later was expected to speak at an aerospace event and at a reception hosted by the Montreal Council on Foreign Relations.

The trip followed Snyder’s weekend visit to Quebec City to participate in a Great Lakes summit.

The Michigan Economic Development Corp. led executives from nine Michigan companies on a concurrent trade mission to Canada.

Michigan is the second-largest exporting state to Canada in the U.S. Michigan companies exported $25 billion in goods and services to Canada in 2014.
