The delegation, which includes Dayton's two sons, "will visit key business centers in Berlin, Dusseldorf/Cologne, Oslo and Stockholm , meet with business leaders and government officials, and participate in business development events and other activities," according to the governor's office.
The cost of trade missions tends to be paid for by the participants, not the state.
Gov. Mark Dayton and Rep. Keith Ellison spoke to a breakfast for delegates from Minnesota and Tennessee at the Democratic National Convention and implored backers of Sen. Bernie Sanders to work for Hillary Clinton and other Democrats down the ballot.
