McCrory Visiting Britain for 1st Overseas Trade Trip

Associated Press

Pat McCrory is on his first announced overseas trade mission as North Carolina's governor, visiting Britain on a short economic recruitment trip.

McCrory spokesman Josh Ellis confirmed the governor arrived there early Tuesday morning and would remain there until Thursday. Ellis says the governor's activities include meeting with executives of companies Ellis declined to name because they involved competitive economic development matters.

Ellis says McCrory is in England with his new state Commerce Secretary John Skvarla, a Commerce Department business recruiter and Christopher Chung, the CEO of North Carolina's new nonprofit organization designed to work on corporate recruitment.

McCrory has made other recruitment trips within the country, including one to California.
