SACRAMENTO (AP) — California Gov. Jerry Brown plans a trade and environmental mission to Mexico this summer, in part to strike a deal reducing air pollution.

Brown’s office announced the dates for the trip Tuesday. The mission will take place the last week of July and be organized by the California Chamber of Commerce.

A spokesman for the Democratic governor, Evan Westrup, said the trip’s details are still being worked out.

The announcement says the delegation will include representatives from business, government, economic development, investment and public policy. It will focus on increasing direct investments in California, expanding cooperation and connecting California businesses with new partners.

Mexico is California’s largest export market.

The mission resembles Brown’s trip to China last year, when he signed agreements to promote clean energy and greenhouse gas reductions.
