Radius Indiana, an eight-county economic development organization, says its first trade mission to Japan yielded meetings with more than a dozen companies. Chief Executive Officer Jeff Quyle, who traveled with 10 other leaders from throughout the region, says the nine-day trip also involved educational outreach opportunities.
Quyle added "we found that our audiences were extremely interested in hearing about the evolving and increasing workforce training programs available in our state and region. In addition to Vincennes University, Ivy Tech, ROI and state workforce training programs, we discussed I-69, Crane and other relevant characteristics that make us open for new business growth."
The group made stops in Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka. You can connect to more about results of the mission by clicking here.
