Jan 11, 2012

Governor Rick Snyder has confirmed plans that he will travel to Italy and Germany in March. The Detroit Free Press reports:

The plans are still being finalized -- another country or two may be added to the weeklong trip -- but Snyder said he definitely plans to visit Italian automaker Fiat, Chrysler's majority owner, and is eager to study Germany's programs for upgrading worker skills.

Snyder visited China, Japan and Korea in September for his first trade mission as Governor. He was there to encourage Asian companies to expand and invest in Michigan.
