Tim Pawlenty on Free Trade

Republican MN Governor


2005 trade mission led to Minnesota-China Partnership

Minnesota's long relationship with China dates back to 1850 when our first missionaries were sent to China--eight years before the territory became the nation's 32nd state. Today myriad connections abound, reinforced through cooperative partnership in business, education, government, and cultural and humanitarian works.

Minnesota's commitment to China reached new heights in 2005 with the Minnesota-China Partnership, an unprecedented statewide initiative to help the people of Minnesota and China continue to build upon this valued relationship when Governor Pawlenty led more than 200 business, government, academic and civic leaders--the largest state delegation ever organized in the United States--on a mission to China. Geared primarily toward trade, the mission included several industry-focused delegations and featured events in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
