    Governor Tom Corbett will head to Brazil and Chile this weekend for his second international trade mission.

    Corbett will be accompanied by his wife and dozens of members of businesses and organizations.

    The goal of the 10-day trip is to connect Pennsylvania commerce with the South American nations for potential business.

    Non-profit group, Team Pennsylvania Foundation, which helped raise money and organize the trip, projects that it will cost nearly $350,000.

    Corbett traveled to Western Europe last year for his first trade mission, visiting France and Germany.
