U.S. Ambassador to China Gary Locke (L) and California Governor Jerry Brown (R) witness a memorandum of understanding between U.S. and China during a Trade and Investment reception at the U.S. Embassy on April 10, 2013 in Beijing, China. Brown is in China leading a business delegation and will meet with Chinese government and business leaders to discuss bilateral trade and investment opportunities between China and his state of California.
Governor Jerry Brown continues his trip in China today, along with about 100 other Californians. They're in the middle of a trade mission designed to convince Chinese business people that the Golden State is a great place to invest some of their wealth.
The trip has already produced one big headline: A $1.5 billion Chinese investment in a massive waterfront development project in Oakland. The Governor is also promoting California's green energy technologies as a solution for China's pollution problems.
He also hopes to get some help for his pet project, the high speed train between L.A. and San Francisco.
Reporter John Myers of the Sacramento ABC affiliate is traveling with the Governor. When we caught up with him, he was on a train bound for Shanghai.
