INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Mike Pence is headed to New York with the hope of luring new business to Indiana.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says in a statement that a delegation led by Pence will meet with location advisers, developers and company executives.

Pence plans to pitch Indiana as a business-friendly, low-cost, low-tax haven.

The Republican governor’s trip is the state’s ninth “jobs mission” where state officials seek out businesses in states that traditionally have higher taxes.

Before the state’s delegation returns on Thursday, they also will make stops in Connecticut and New Jersey to make similar appeals to business.
