Governor: Chinese delegation in the Mountain State

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WDTV) -- Governor Jim Justice says a delegation of nearly 30 people from China is in the Mountain State, working to solidify plans for a memorandum of understanding that has the potential to create a more than $80 billion energy investment in West Virginia during the next 20 years.

WSAZ reports that Governor Justice said the group is made of up of people from China Energy and the Chinese government.

He said they spent time in Morgantown, Thursday, including at West Virginia University, as they work to make the shale and chemical manufacturing projects a reality.

They'll continue to travel to places across the state over the next few days.
