More than 150 government and business leader will travel from Asia to Iowa next week for a celebration.

The group will be arriving to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Iowa’s sister-state relationship with an area in northern China.

The sister-state agreement was signed in 1983 when Gov. Terry Branstad traveled to China’s Hebei Province.  Branstad visited the region this past April during a week-long trade mission.

To commemorate a variety of educational exchanges, trade deals and commodity purchases between Iowans and the people of Hebei, a signing ceremony will be held in Des Moines on Tuesday.

The total value of those trade and investment deals will approach one-billion dollars, according to the Iowa Economic Development Authority.
