Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels’s office has released his travel plans for an upcoming trip to China and Japan. ¬†Daniels and his companions will spend much of their time focusing on economic development.

As Governor, Daniels has visited China once and Japan four times. He and a group of Indiana business representatives will depart next week and spend ten days abroad. One week of the trip will be spent in China, where the group will meet with businesses that either have operations in Indiana, or that may be considering opening branches or manufacturing plants in the U.S.

Daniels’s business in Japan will be similar. The governor will spend several days meeting with business presidents, including the heads of Honda and Toyota.

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear returned last week from a similar trip to India.
