McDonnell will travel to India, China and Israel

Anita Kumar

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) said Thursday morning that he will travel on trade missions to India, China and Israel next year.

McDonnell also said on his monthly radio show on WRVA that the state's new trade offices in India, China and the United Kingdom will open within six to nine months.

McDonnell proposed the offices and the General Assembly approved spending $1.5 million over two years for them.

Currently the state spends about $880,000 a year on independent contractors in four markets -- Brussels, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Mexico.

McDonnell went on his first trade mission to Europe -- an eight-day trip to Britain, the Netherlands and Germany -- in July. The trip was built around the Farnborough International Air Show taking place outside London.
