SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

South Dakota's governor thinks his trip to China will boost the state's exports to the nation of 1.3 billion.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says South Dakota ranks last among the states in trade with China, but China is South Dakota's third-largest export market.

The governor says state business leaders and ag officials in his group have 80 meetings planned with Chinese government agencies and businesses. The goal is to develop working relationships between the groups.

Daugaard says it's like going on a "blind date."

"We've been doing a lot of speed dating, is really what we've been doing over the last few days. And for the next few days we'll do that. Then, when all the businesses get home, they'll have to see who they want to call up for that second date," said Daugaard.

This is the second trade trip Daugaard has made to China.
