Kentucky leaders visit Japan on business trip


Hosted by Caroline Kennedy

FRANKFORT, Ky. (April 27, 2015) ‚ÄĒ The largest Kentucky delegation to visit Japan in 30 years returned to the commonwealth on Thursday after an eight-day business mission to Tokyo, Nagoya and Kyoto.

The Kentucky Chamber-led mission was highlighted by a reception honoring Gov. Steve Beshear and the Kentucky Chamber delegation at U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy’s residence in Tokyo.

Although Beshear was in Japan, Singapore and Taiwan on a separate economic development mission, he met with chamber leaders at the reception and during the delegation’s tour of the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology in Nagoya.
