Chinese Trade Officials Tour Miss.

JACKSON, Miss. A delegation of high-ranking Chinese trade officials toured Mississippi on Monday as part of their trip to the United States to purchase billions of dollars in goods ranging from cotton to aircraft.

China plans to spend as much as $500 million on cotton, one of Mississippi's top agricultural exports, said Meredith Allen, vice president of marketing for Greenwood-based Staple Cotton Cooperative Association.

Staple Cotton, which sometimes appears as Staplcotn, is the largest cotton marketing cooperative in the U.S., representing more than 21,000 farm accounts and dealing in some 4 million bales annually, according to its Web site.

Gov. Haley Barbour told the group that he expects trade between Mississippi and China to continue to grow in the coming years, adding that China is a major buyer of furniture, agriculture products and other goods.
