Two Howard officials to go to China


Howard County's two top elected officials plan to visit several provinces in China near the capital Beijing on their two-week trip to the Far East, sponsored by the National Association of Counties (NACo).

C. Vernon Gray, an east Columbia Democrat, County Council chairman and NACo president, invited County Executive James N. Robey, also a Democrat, to accompany other local government officials from across the country on the trip, which is intended to explore business, educational and cultural opportunities.

The group, which leaves Sunday, is to see the Three Gorge Dam on the Yangtze River and go to Tiajin province 100 miles south of the capital to talk about economic development with local officials.
