Gov. Neil Abercrombie was in Los Angeles Friday for the United States and China economic trade meetings.

The U.S.-China Economic Trade and Trade Cooperation Forum and Signing Ceremony capped Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping's visit to the United States.

Abercrombie traveled to California for the meetings at the request of Vice President Joe Biden and California Gov. Jerry Brown.

The forum is intended to encourage more Chinese investment in the United States. Abercrombie said he would also use the trip to expand business and visitor industry relationships for Hawaii.

Department of Business and Economic Development and Tourism Director Richard Lim and Hawai'i Tourism Authority President Mike McCartney also attended the meetings with the governor.
