The dozens of California VIPs who will barnstorm through China this week on a trade mission with Gov. Jerry Brown have arrived, and the first swag of the trip has been distributed.
It’s a pin.
Our correspondent traveling with the delegation, Anthony York, tweeted a blurry photo of the piece shortly before the delegates turned in for the night after their many-hour flight.
Brown did not travel with the rest of the crowd. He stayed back an extra day to celebrate his 75th birthday in California.
The pin the delegates are invited to wear throughout their journey is emblazoned with the logo of the newly established California-China Office of Trade Investment. Brown will officially open the office during the trip.
