Governor Eric J. Holcomb and Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch will lead international economic development trips in September, working to strengthen Indiana’s global economy by targeting growth in key sectors.

Gov. Holcomb, First Lady Janet Holcomb and Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger will lead a delegation on a three-day mission to northern Italy, which boasts a strong automotive sector, from September 19-21 to meet with business prospects interested in expanding in the U.S. The delegation will also meet with executives of Italian companies with operations in Indiana.

“Indiana and Italy share a rich heritage for auto racing and manufacturing," Gov. Holcomb said. "We’re proud to be home to Dallara, a premiere Italian automotive company and this trip will be an ideal opportunity to build on our shared successes by putting the pedal to the metal in our race to bring more global automotive and racing companies to our state."

Indiana is home to 30 Italian companies, which are largely in the automotive and manufacturing industries.

Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch and Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director (ISDA) Bruce Kettler will lead a delegation of Indiana's agricultural leaders to Manitoba, Canada, from Sept. 16-19 to promote economic development and grow ties with the country's largest agricultural province.

The delegation will participate in business round tables, hold meetings with senior government and university officials and tour research facilities. Conversations will revolve around agricultural youth leadership and education, seed research and genetics, and food development.


Indiana exports more product to Canada than any other country in the world and is home to more than 70 Canadian businesses.
