"This will be a whirlwind schedule in Central Europe as we visit with government, military and business leaders from six countries in seven days."

Joining the governor on the trip are First Lady Janet Holcomb, Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger, House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-88) and Cheryl Bosma, and Senate President Pro Tempore David Long (R-16) and Melissa Long. Major General Courtney Carr, Adjunct General of Indiana, will join the delegation in Slovakia, and Martin Baier, president and chief executive officer of The International Center, will join the delegation in Germany and France.

The trip will culminate with the governor flying back to Indianapolis on the inaugural Delta Air lines (NYSE: DAL) nonstop flight between Paris and Indy. Holcomb will then deliver the Indy 500 green flag to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
