    The New Year’s Weekend Experience You’ll be Talking About Forever

    Gov. Rick Perry says his first trip to China has led to increased exposure for Texas in Asia.

    Perry, in a conference call from Taiwain on Monday, told reporters that he held talks with two Chinese companies that are interested in making investments in Houston and in Corpus Christi. Specifics were not released.

    Perry also says he took part in conversations that could result in direct flights from Texas to Shanghai and Beijing, with routes including Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston.
