Date set for May 11-16, 2014


Beshear's office said Wednesday the trade mission is set for May 11-16. The Kentucky delegation will make stops in London and Manchester. Beshear says the trip will give Kentucky companies a chance to build business ties in the United Kingdom, which has the world's sixth-largest economy.

Kentucky exported more than $1.6 billion in products and services to the United Kingdom last year, up more than 20 percent from 2012. Top exports include aerospace and pharmaceutical products.


He says the mission will focus on increasing commerce and promoting tourism.  The trip follows another record export year for Kentucky. Exports of Kentucky products and services totaled $23 billion in the first 11 months of 2013.
