Holcomb has been to Europe for a second trade mission in recent weeks


Governor Eric Holcomb will travel to Europe next week for an economic development trip.

The week-long trade mission will include visits to Sweden, the UK and Monaco.

This is the second economic development trip in just last weeks as Holcomb said, those trips are starting to pick up after the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“People are trying to make up for lost time…we can’t just wait for people to come to us to do business with us,” Holcomb said.

Part of the trip will focus on the motorsports industry, which is already well established in Indiana. Holcomb said now is a good time to renew and strengthen those existing relationships.

“The racing industry is very involved in the energy space, in the energy transition, in the innovations that are happening in terms of the battery,” Holcomb said.

The trip is paid for by private donations to the Indiana Economic Development Foundation – donations that are largely protected from public disclosure.
