ICYMI - Governor Bevin heading to India in January

ICYMI - FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 7, 2018) - The U.S. Department of Commerce has selected Gov. Matt Bevin to lead an economic development delegation to India in mid-January to attend the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2019, also providing an opportunity to discuss and promote Kentucky as a must-see location for corporate investment and job growth.

The delegation, which includes the U.S.-India Business Council (USIBC) and co-leaders of the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development, will strengthen ties with national and state government leaders, industry groups and individual businesses in one of the world's largest and fastest growing economies.

The Kentucky General Assembly begins meeting on January 8th - 11th. Then the legislators take off until February 5th. So the Governor can toodle off without a care. (This is not a budget session and the Governor's party firmly controls both House and Senate.)
