Alaska Gov. Walker, in search of pipeline investors, will join Trump's Chinese trade mission

Alaska Gov. Bill Walker said Thursday that he will join President Donald Trump's trade mission to Asia next week, in hopes of striking a deal with Chinese companies on the state's proposed $43 billion gas-export project.

Walker, who was in Washington, D.C., for congressional hearings, told reporters in a hastily organized conference call Thursday that he'll leave with Trump's entourage Friday for meetings in Hawaii.

Walker will then travel separately to Beijing over the weekend, where he expects to seek investments in the pipeline project and commitments to buy gas.

Walker and Keith Meyer, the head of the state's gas pipeline agency, will join dozens of American corporate leaders on the trade mission, including the chief executives of Goldman Sachs and Qualcomm.
