Four Chinese provincial chiefs and a U.S. state governor met here Thursday to explore ways to boost cooperation in trade, culture and education.

Among the participants in the conference in this western U.S. city are Zhao Hongzhu, chief of Zhejiang Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China; Wang Sanyun, governor of Anhui Province; Qin Guangrong, governor of Yunnan Province; Luo Huining, governor of Qinghai Province; and Gary Herbert, governor of the U.S. state of Utah.

During the opening session, the Chinese provincial chiefs briefly introduced their provinces and said they were ready to promote trade, investment and people-to-people exchanges with U.S. states.

"The future of business is in the global arena. Perhaps the strongest evidence of that is Utah's strengthening relationship with China," said Herbert.

The conference, which was expected to focus on business, education and technology, took place ahead of the upcoming China-U.S. Governors Forum due to open Friday.
