Governor Sanders Announces Second Overseas Trade Mission

Will travel to South Korea and Japan March 6-14

 LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders released the following statement today announcing her second overseas trade mission:

“After the success of last summer’s trade mission to Europe, I’m excited to announce that I will be representing Arkansas on my second overseas trade mission, this time in Asia. Alongside Commerce Secretary McDonald, Economic Development Commissioner O’Neal, and other state leaders, I’ll meet with Japanese and Korean business executives and government leaders to encourage investment in Arkansas and deepen our state’s connection with America’s Asian allies. With the rising threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party, these relationships have never been more important. Arkansas is making groundbreaking advancements in energy, aerospace, manufacturing, and more. At the same time, my administration is cutting taxes, investing in education, and reducing violent crime. I know all of this will appeal to Asian leaders and businesses and help bring new investment and jobs to our state.”
