BISMARCK — North Dakota officials are going on an eight-day trade mission to Indonesia and Vietnam.

The delegation led by officials with the North Dakota Trade Office and state Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring is leaving Nov. 30. Twelve companies will be represented on the trip.

Trade Office Executive Director Dean Gorder says Indonesia and Vietnam are key in the Asia-Pacific market, which is an important export destination for North Dakota and the U.S. Goehring says officials believe North Dakota can supply more of the products in demand in the two countries.

Following the trade mission, Trade Office representatives plan "relationship-building" visits to Japan and South Korea.
