Daniels Returns From Asia Trip

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels is back from his trade mission to Japan and China, but says it's too soon to tell if the trip will result in more jobs coming to the Hoosier State.

Daniels led a delegation of about 50 government and business leaders to the Far East. The group returned yesterday.The governor says he's glad they made the trip, if only to show gratitude to the firms that have invested in Indiana."Indiana clearly stands apart among the midwest states now, both in terms of results and i think good relationships with the japanese business community. In the case of China, I'm very glad we went, maybe we should have gone a year or two sooner, but I don't think we missed any opportunities," Daniels said Thursday.Japan has about 220 firms in Indiana that employ more than 40,000 people. China has located a handful of companies in the state.
