Typhoon delays Indiana trade mission to Japan

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A trade mission by Indiana government and business leaders to Japan is being delayed because of a typhoon expected to hit the island nation.

The group, led by Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman, was set to fly from Indianapolis on Tuesday and arrive in Tokyo Wednesday evening. The typhoon is forecast to make landfall Wednesday afternoon.

Skillman's office said travel agents are working to find later flights for the trade group.

The group plans to visit Ohta City, Nagoya and Tochigi Prefecture, Indiana's sister state.

Representatives from the Indiana Economic Development Corp., Duke Energy and regional economic development groups are part of the delegation. Japanese companies employ more than 38,000 people in Indiana.
