RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Terry McAuliffe is set to travel to Canada this week to promote Virginia business with a top importer.

McAuliffe’s office said Monday the governor will head a four-day marketing tour starting Tuesday.

The governor will visit Toronto and Montreal during the trade mission.

He will also go to Boston.

Canada is a major trading partner with Virginia, importing more than $3.3 billion in manufactured goods in 2015.

McAuliffe said he plans to promote Virginia oysters, wine, craft beer and travel opportunities during the trip.

The Democratic governor has made economic development a cornerstone of his administration and frequently takes trade missions abroad.
