Gov. Holcomb Headed to India

Gov. Eric Holcomb will depart next week for a week-long trade mission to India.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Governor Eric Holcomb is going abroad -- this time, to India.

Gov. Holcomb, Indiana First Lady Janet Holcomb, and Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger will depart next Friday for a trade mission that includes stops in Delhi, Bangalore, Mysore and Pune.

The goal of the trip, according to Holcomb, is to promote and strengthen economic ties between Indiana and India. There are at least nine India-based companies with outposts in Indiana, including Infosys, which is set to open offices in Indianapolis.

"With recent, large job commitments from India-based companies, we are building even greater momentum to send more Hoosier-made goods to India and recruit more Indian businesses to grow here in Indiana," Governor Holcomb said. "I'll remain focused on taking our state to the world and bringing the world back to our Hoosier communities."

The delegation will depart October 27 and return November 3.

The trip will be Holcomb's third trade mission since taking office in January. He visited France, Hungary and Japan earlier this year.
