Lt. Gov. leading trade trip

LANSING (AP) — Michigan Lt. Gov. Brian Calley says he’s leading a delegation of state and local officials, business people and economic development experts on a six-day investment trip to the Netherlands.

Calley says the group leaves Saturday and returns April 19. Other participants include Michigan House Speaker House Jase Bolger, state Sen. Arlan Meekhof and Michigan agriculture Director Jamie Clover Adams.

The lieutenant governor says Michigan’s long-standing ties with Dutch companies have brought jobs to the state.

Calley says stops include The Hague, Amsterdam and Zeeland to meet with key government and business leaders.

He says he’ll meet with bank executives, advanced agricultural production and technology companies and auto suppliers.

The mission is a project of the West Michigan Global Initiative and other groups.
