LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan Lt. Gov. Brian Calley is planning to meet with government officials and business leaders during a two-day visit to Mexico.

Calley was expected to leave Sunday on the mission to strengthen trade relations and attract job-creating investments to Michigan.

He will meet Monday with Mexican government officials and visit the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City. Calley also will speak with Mexican-based auto supplier Rassini.

Executives from nine Michigan companies will meet with prospective partners, product distributors and buyers to increase export opportunities.

The Michigan Economic Development Corp. is sponsoring the trip.

Calley's office says Mexico is Michigan's second-largest trading partner. Eleven Mexican-owned companies are operating in the state and employ more than 1,800 people.

Calley led a six-day investment mission last month to the Netherlands.
