Valdosta - Four Georgia mayors will visit China, one of them is from Valdosta.

John Fretti leaves Monday for Beijing.  The mayors of Athens, Marietta and Savannah will join him.

Brad Lofton, the executive director of the Industrial Authority is also going.  They hope the trip will bring more industry to the community.

"One is for economic development so we can start recruiting Chinese Industry and the second approach would be to increase tourism back and forth," says Mayor John Fretti.

They'll return from China Saturday April 12th.
