Two northern Indiana economic development groups will work with Purdue University to develop strategic plans designed to expand trade and investment with China.
Greater Lafayette Commerce and the Logansport-Cass County Economic Development Foundation are part of the plan announced last week as part of Purdue's new Global Business Engagement Initiative.
The initiative was launched at Purdue on Feb. 25 during an Indiana mayoral roundtable on China.
Initiative director Mark Van Fleet says the partnerships are the first to be announced as part of the project.
Greater Lafayette Commerce CEO Joe Seaman will be part of a delegation that will travel to Shandong Province in China this week as part of the initiative.
