Next year's State Fair to feature Japanese exhibit

September 14, 2009

Japanese culture will be on display at the Indiana State Fair next year. Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels announced today, while traveling on a economic development mission in Japan, that the Asian country will be featured in its own exhibit at the fair for the first time in 2010.

“With so many Hoosiers now employed by Japanese companies, this is a great opportunity to showcase the economic and cultural impact that Japan has on our state,” Daniels said in a prepared statement.

Visitors to the fair will learn more about Japanese agriculture, culture and the close ties the country has with Indiana.

Daniels made the announcement while in Tochigi, a sister state of Indiana’s. Daniels is on a 12-day, privately funded trip to China and Japan to help attract business to the state. He is scheduled to return Wednesday.
