LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Gov. Pete Ricketts is touting Nebraska businesses during his second trade mission to China.

The governor is traveling with state agriculture and economic development officials to expand the state’s business relationships in Asia. Ricketts said during a conference call Wednesday that the trip is part of his efforts to help Nebraska businesses gain access to global markets.

Ricketts visited a Nebraska pavilion at a world-renowned agricultural fair in China that draws over 1 million people. Nebraska companies sponsored several booths at the event to feature their agricultural technology.

The trade mission delegation is scheduled to visit China, Macau and Hong Kong. The trip began on Wednesday and runs through Tuesday.
