LANSING — More Michigan companies are exploring business opportunities in the fast-growing Chinese market. The latest trade mission by Gov. Rick Snyder and business leaders from 21 companies sought export and investment opportunities for firms in the state. Snyder went to Asia on a trade mission last year, stopping in China, Japan and South Korea. This trip focused solely on China to continue to build relationships and forge partnerships for new trade and business opportunities, said Sara Wurfel, press secretary for the governor’s office. The 10-day trip was intended to expand the Chinese market for Michigan-made products and services, along with the opening of the Michigan Center China Office in Shanghai.
