RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell is planning an economic development trip to England, Germany and Sweden this summer.

 

McDonnell's office on Wednesday said the trip to promote Virginia and its goods and services is tentatively scheduled for mid-June.

 

McDonnell is currently leading a four-day trip to New York and Canada. That trip included a reception to promote Virginia tourism, wine and film with Donald Trump on Tuesday and another reception scheduled for Thursday in Montreal. The governor's office says the trip is expected to cost about $140,500.

 

It is the Republican governor's fifth international trade mission since he took office in January 2010. He has previously led trips to Israel, India, Japan, China, South Korea, Germany, England and the Netherlands. Those trips have yielded several export agreements and business deals.
