JUNEAU – Governor Bill Walker today announced the delegation for Opportunity Alaska: China Trade Mission, which will include fisheries, tourism, and investment businesses, as well as a baby food maker, an architecture firm, and a university.

The group, which departs in May, will represent some of the best Alaska has to offer, and highlights the wide scope of our shared interests with our largest trade partner. From fresh crab air-lifted to Shanghai, to international shipping routes, to Beijing tourists traveling to see the northern lights in Fairbanks, Alaska’s economic powerhouses have ties that span the Pacific. The delegation will travel with a mission to empower Alaska businesses at home and abroad by reinforcing Alaska’s reputation for unique products and incredible experiences in the world’s largest consumer market.
