Governor Eric Holcomb and Secretary of Commerce Brad Chambers will be traveling to Europe later this month as part of an economic development trip. This will be their second overseas trade mission in a month, having traveled to Slovakia and Israel in early April.
The governor’s office says they will travel to Sweden, United Kingdom and Monaco from April 24 to May 1.
During this trip, Holcomb and Chambers will meet with UK government and business leaders, including representatives from Tate & Lyle, a global food and beverage ingredients manufacturer that has two plants in Lafayette.
The Indiana delegation will also meet with leaders from Rolls-Royce, which employs approximately 3,300 Hoosiers. Last year, the company completed a $600 million renovation of its Indianapolis facilities.
Rolls-Royce also has a growing research presence at Purdue University, as does Sweden-based Saab.
Holcomb and Chambers will meet with executives from Saab, a global aerospace and defense company to discuss further opportunities for Indiana.
The governor’s office says while in Monaco, the delegation will meet with Prince Albert II of Monaco and take-in the Formula E World Championship race, which is a single-seater motorsport championship for electric cars.
Next month, international economic development officials will be in Indianapolis taking part in Indiana’s inaugural Global Economic Summit. The event is scheduled for May 26-29, including taking part in the Indianapolis 500.
