McDonnell touts Virginia in trip to East Asia

leave a comment »

Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell is a traveling salesman this week. He is on the road, touting the benefits of Virginia to business and industry in China, Japan and Korea.

The taxpayer-funded trip took McDonnell and members of his economic development to team to several cities in the Far East. It has already led to the creation of a new Virginia business development office in Shanghai and the Governor promises more encouraging deals will be closed before he leaves.

I spoke one on one with McDonnell via Skype from Beijing, China about the trip and why he thinks it will lead to positive gains for the Commonwealth’s future.
