Gov. Terry Branstad says he will leave Sunday for a 10-day trade trip to Asia. Speaking at his weekly news conference Monday, Branstad told reporters he will visit South Korea, China and Japan.
Branstad says he'll meet with top government officials in those countries, including the vice
president of China.
Branstad's trip is a follow-up to one headed by Lt. Gov. Kim
Reynolds, who visited some of the same countries in June.
