OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ State officials say a recent trade mission to China could soon mean more work for Oklahoma companies.

Governor Henry, state Commerce Secretary Kathy Taylor and State Chamber president Richard Rush were among more than 50 officials who spent 12-days in China.

State officials say the Chinese are looking for companies in the areas of tourism, agriculture, manufacturing, bio-medical and infrastructure.

One Chinese company is looking for a company in the U-S to build a slaughter and processing plant for yak and sheep.

Taylor says at least three Chinese companies are planning to visit Oklahoma in the next few months.
