Jindal To Leave Saturday For Economic Development Trip
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Gov. Bobby Jindal's administration is providing few details about the governor's Asian economic development mission, which begins Saturday.
The administration has offered sketchy outlines of where Jindal will be and little information about the companies and government officials with whom he'll be meeting in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.
Jindal said the weeklong trip is designed to bolster business development and trade connections. He and Economic Development Secretary Stephen Moret said they will meet with leaders of 10 companies, most of which are considering projects in Louisiana.
Jindal and Moret say they don't want to tip their hand to other states about what kind of business deals they are developing and what projects they're trying to woo.
Jindal spokesman Kyle Plotkin says more details will be released during the trip.
