Governor Bobby Jindal Says Asian Business Leaders Will Visit Louisiana
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal spent a week trying to drum up business for Louisiana while visiting Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.
The governor returned with no announced commitments after the trip.
Jindal said that many of the senior officials that he met while traveling plan to make visits to Louisiana in the next six months. He said these officials will likely be looking at possible sites for investment.
The governor declined to comment on which officials will come to the state.
The governor and Economic Development Secretary Stephen Moret were able to meet with executives from three companies that already have facilities in Louisiana. The two also met with the leaders of nine other companies, but they declined to name the companies saying they need a degree of secrecy when dealing with economic negotiations.
