Ky. governor to lead trade mission to Canada

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear says he will lead a trade mission to Canada in June, and that international businesses interested in participating should sign up quickly due to limited spacing.

Beshear said the trip to Toronto will be the first trade mission held by the Kentucky Export Initiative. The goal of the event from June 4-7 is to increase commerce between Kentucky and Canada. Beshear says Canada is the No. 1 destination for exported Kentucky goods and services, "but there is plenty of room to grow."

The trip will include a reception June 5 during which businesses from Kentucky and Canada can build better relationships.
