MORE than 200 executives and export companies are travelling on a seven-day trade mission to China with Enda Kenny.

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton will attend along with the Taoiseach, and part of his schedule will be to meet two Enterprise Ireland companies -- Movidius and PCH -- both successful Irish companies to the Chinese market.

Mr Bruton (above) said that Irish trade with China has grown in recent years, but the country must do more to take advantage of the great potential for jobs and growth. "Ministerial trade missions will form a key part of our strategy to further develop our trade and investment links with China," he added.
