Gov. Jerry Brown will promote California to Chinese investors and seek to expand the state's economic ties in a visit to China next week. 

Brown's office on Wednesday released details of the six-day trip, which will include stops in Beijing, Nanjing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. The Democratic governor will be accompanied by about 75 business and policy leaders from California.

They will open a California trade and investment office in Shanghai that is being funded with private money. It's the first official presence there for the state since California closed its two Chinese trade offices in 2003.

Brown and other officials also will visit a company that manufactures solar energy technology and electric vehicles. They will meet with China's minister of commerce, the U.S. ambassador to China and other officials.
