Snyder: Tokyo visit welcome chance to show support
Governor Rick Snyder has left Japan, and is now in China. Beijing is the second stop on his four-city Asian trade mission.
Snyder said the Tokyo visit was a welcome chance to show some support for Japan.
"Because they're still recovering from March 11thin terms of the tsunami and earthquake, and they're a great people, and they really appreciate the outpouring of support from Michigan after that happened," said Snyder.
Michigan already has about 500 Japanese companies doing business in the state.
Snyder said there are even more opportunities to increase trade with Japan. That's in part because some Japanese companies are considering an increase in overseas production after the tsunami.
Snyder goes to Shanghai next, then Seoul, before returning to Michigan on Saturday.
