Daugaard and other members of the trade mission spoke by telephone from Shanghai on Tuesday with South Dakota news organizations. The governor says South Dakota ranks last among the states in trade with China, but China is South Dakota's third-largest export market.


Daugaard says the delegation is holding 80 meetings with Chinese government agencies and businesses In Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong. The mission includes 11 South Dakota businesses and three associations representing soybean, corn and pork producers.


State Agriculture Secretary Walt Bones says one-third of South Dakota's soybeans are already exported to China. He says Chinese people want American food products to improve their diet.
