CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Gov. Matt Mead is heading to China in June for an international coal conference.
Renny MacKay is spokesman for the governor. MacKay says Mead will be at the conference from June 3-5 and plans to travel in China for a few days after that to inspect some coal projects.
This is the third meeting of the Advanced Coal Technologies International Conference, which is held every two years. Earlier conferences have been held in Queensland, Australia, and Laramie.
MacKay says the University of Wyoming's School of Energy Resources is organizing the trip. He says Mead believes it offers the opportunity to promote research on advanced coal technology and help advance collaboration on coal, an important resource in Wyoming.
