Speaker Wills, trade ambassador
Not to be outdone by the lieutenant governor, House Speaker Robbie Wills today signed his own letter of agreement with Chinese officials.
On behalf of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, the Democrat from Conway represented Arkansas in a signing ceremony for a memorandum of understanding between Arkansas and the Chinese Investment Promotion Agency of China’s Ministry of Commerce. AEDC says in a news release the parties have agreed to work together to promote investment between Arkansas and China.
Last week, Lt. Gov. Bill Halter announced he had signed a letter of intent to increase trade between Arkansas and China’s Henan Province. Unlike Halter, though, Wills did not go to China to sign his document. The signing ceremony was part of a forum on China-U.S. trade held in Phoenix.
