INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s governor has started a weeklong overseas trip by meeting with business and government leaders in South Korea.

Gov. Eric Holcomb on Wednesday began the trip that will continue onto Japan before ending Sept. 10. The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says Holcomb and state business leaders met with South Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon in Seoul, discussing how the state can support Korean companies that have operations in Indiana. Other activities by the group included a stop at Panmunjom in the Korean Demilitarized Zone, where he visited American troops.

Holcomb has more foreign travel plans coming up with a trip to China and India that’s scheduled for Sept. 22 to Oct. 5, concluding with the governor joining the Indiana Pacers in Mumbai for the NBA’s first games in India.
