Last updated on Monday, May 7, 2007

(BEDFORD) - Next Saturday, Governor Mitchell Daniels will be leading a group of business and local leaders to Germany and the United Kingdom.

The group will visit several companies that have recently made investments in Indiana. One of those delegates will be Lawrence County Economic Growth Council Executive Director Gene McCraken. He says the Council has wanted him to go for some time.

McCraken says they will be introduced to the American Consulates of each country. While in Germany, McCraken is planning to meet with officials from the Lehigh Cement Company.
McCraken says he is thankful for Indiana Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman. He says after hearing about the trip he wrote to Skillman to ask to be part of the group.

This is the first time McCraken has taken a trip out of the country. They will be back in a week.
