ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is planning an economic development trip to Asia this spring.
Hogan said in an interview Monday with The Associated Press that he is planning the trip to South Korea, China and Japan at the end of May or early June.
The Republican governor says there are a number of initiatives the state is looking at to stimulate economic investment and job creation in the state. He says one of them is meeting with Asiana Airlines and Korea Air to talk about the possibility of getting flights to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
Hogan says the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development trip will be paid for by the state, not any outside interests.
He says the state is still working on details about the trip.
