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. St. Cloud State President  Earl Potter is among those making the trip. 

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.
