Pence to visit United Kingdom on economic development trip

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is leading a group of business and community leaders on a jobs mission to the United Kingdom next month.

Pence's office announced on Thursday the group will leave on July 12 and conclude the trip on July 16. They plan to attend the Farnborough International Airshow near London, where the state will have a booth. He says the aerospace industry is flourishing in Indiana.

He will also make calls to executives with agricultural processor Tate & Lyle, BP and steelmaker ArcelorMittal in London.

Pence's office says the cost of the state delegation is being covered through private donations to the Indiana Economic Development Foundation.

Pence has made similar trips to Germany and Japan.

  • Not taxpayer funded
    Italiano, the story clearly says the trip is privately funded, as were the previous trade missions.
  • Hope springs eternal
    Oh if only we could keep him there, but the Brits know better.....sigh, and on the taxpayer dollar too....double sigh
