LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – A group of Michigan business leaders, along with Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, will leave Saturday for a trade mission to the United Kingdom and Ireland.
This trip is the first time during the Snyder administration that the two countries have been visited by a trade delegation.
The goal of the visit is to develop relationships that could create jobs, primarily in the aerospace and automotive industries.
“We have a great opportunity during our first visit to these two countries to tell the Michigan story and help create trade and business prospects for Michigan companies,” Calley said.
The group is expected to return to Michigan October 1.
Joining Calley will be representatives from Michigan companies, including Comerica Bank and Consumers Energy.
Calley has led five previous trade missions since taking office in 2011.
