Iowa Gov. Back From Trade Trip to India, Japan

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Gov. Terry Branstad will soon be back in his office in the Iowa state Capitol.

Branstad returns Tuesday afternoon from a trade trip to India and Japan. He will be at work Wednesday.

Branstad told reporters this week that the trip could soon deliver some results. Branstad says the state is chasing at least one significant project and several smaller ones. Iowa exports to India grew 22 percent in the first half of the year compared to the same six months last year.

Branstad departed Sept. 6 and first went to Japan for the 2013 Midwest U.S.-Japan Association Conference in Tokyo. Then he continued to India for a six-day trade trip, which featured stops in several cities to meet with business and government leaders.
