Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell briefs the media Tuesday from Sweden, on the progress of a nine day economic and trade mission to Europe.
He and other state and U.S. leaders have already visited Germany, Switzerland and Great Britain. He says they hope to build on an already strong bond with Sweden that alone already has 32 companies that do business in the U.S. and some in Virginia. The governor says this is critical to the global economy.
The pricetag on the trade and marketing mission will run about $160,000. This is McDonnell's sixth overseas trade mission since taking office.
