MILWAUKEE (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker is declaring his trade trip to China a success, saying it has already produced tangible results.

The Republican governor points to a $200 million deal to sell Wisconsin-grown ginseng to one of China's largest medicine companies as the biggest achievement of the trip. But he says a deal in the works to sell animal feed products to a Chinese dairy company could be just as big.

He also says that he saw evidence of growing demand for iconic Wisconsin-made products, such as Harley-Davidson motorcycles, and he was impressed by the rapid expansion there of Wisconsin companies like Arcadia-based Ashley Furniture.

Walker says it's hard to say how much the trade mission may ultimately be worth because it could lead to opportunities down the road.
