TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Gov. Sam Brownback is celebrating an agreement between Kansas and central China’s Henan province as a significant development in their trade relationship.

Brownback said Monday the state and the province have agreed to work on projects related to agriculture, food safety and the biosciences that include education, research, and developing commercial projects from research.

Brownback and Henan’s provincial governor signed the agreement last week during a Kansas trade mission to China. The Kansas delegation also included state Agriculture Secretary Dale Rodman and Commerce Secretary Pat George.

Brownback says the agreement follows up on three decades of goodwill missions involving Kansas and Henan province.

The Kansas delegation also visited Guangdong province in southern China before returning early Monday.
