Governor Hogan Leaves On Trade Trip to Asia Next Week

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Larry Hogan is leaving on a trade trip to Asia.

Ben Wu, deputy secretary for the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development, said Thursday the trade mission next week to South Korea, China and Japan is scheduled for 12 days.

Officials and businesses will promote Maryland as a gateway to the U.S. market. The trip also is being made to help position Maryland companies for new trade and investment opportunities in foreign markets.

About 36 people are going, including first lady Yumi Hogan, who is Korean. Fifteen of the people who are attending are business executives.

Wu says the state is paying for the trip, and the business executives are paying their own way. Wu says the estimated cost to the state for the trip is about $140,000.
