JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri officials have completed an agreement to boost exports and investment in northwestern China by $200 million.
Gov. Jay Nixon's office said Friday that the deal calls for state Department of Economic Development to work with officials in Xinjiang Uygur to increase Missouri exports from 2012 to 2014.
Nixon was in China last month for a trip focused on boosting trade. While there, he announced a separate agreement for Missouri to sell $4.4 billion worth of products to China for the next three years.
