ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton and the members of a Minnesota trade delegation are headed to Sweden for the first stop of a 10-day mission.

The 35-person delegation of public and private sector officials was leaving Minnesota on Wednesday afternoon and won’t return to the state until June 21.

In Stockholm, Sweden, the governor has a Thursday reception at the U.S. ambassador’s residence. There are also meetings this week with Swedish business and government leaders and a visit to a medical facility dubbed the Mayo Clinic of Sweden.

From there, it’s off to Norway and later Germany.
