SEATTLE (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is visiting Washington state this week to talk about trade policy.

Romney is scheduled to speak Thursday afternoon at Microsoft's campus in Redmond. The former Massachusetts governor has accused China of stealing intellectual property and proposed sanctioning the country for deliberately keeping its currency low.

He's also proposed a coalition of nations that would work on trade and respect intellectual property rights while pushing trade pacts with Colombia, Panama and South Korea.

Romney's talk will come after a fundraising luncheon in Seattle. He is also scheduled to travel to Portland on Friday for a fundraiser.
