Governor Riley and other Southern Governors talk trade with China

HOOVER,AL (WBRC) - Governor Riley is spending the weekend hosting fellow governors at the Ross Bridge Resort in Hoover.

Jobs and economic development dominated the agenda of the Southern Governor's Association today.

As chairman of the SGA, Riley has made increased trade with China a priority of the region.

Riley and the Governors from Mississippi,North Carolina,Tennessee and Virginia promoted a new campaign to brand the region as "The American south" to international business.

Riley says working together as a region to boost trade with China and encourage Asian businesses to invest here will put the south ahead of other parts of the US for the decade to come.
