JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon will be heading to Brazil on a trade mission later this month.

Nixon planned to announce more details of the trip during news conferences Tuesday at 11:45 a.m. in Springfield and 2:30 p.m. in Independence.

Last year, Missouri businesses sold $323 million worth of products to Brazil, which ranked as the state's 10th largest export market.

Nixon's trip to the South American nation comes about six months after he led a trade delegation to China.

Missouri's international exports totaled $14.1 billion in 2011, an all-time high.
