Ohio Governor John Kasich will join a delegation of state officials and business leaders this Wednesday on an economic development trip to Japan.
A Kasich spokesperson says he was invited by officials from the state's semi-private economic development office, JobsOhio. The delegation will meet with companies in Japan about development opportunities. Leaders of economic development agencies in Cincinnati, Columbus and Toledo also will be on the trip. State officials say there are more than 300 Japanese-owned companies in Ohio and Japan is the state's top source of international investment.
