Kentucky leaders visit Japan on business trip


Hosted by Caroline Kennedy

FRANKFORT, Ky. (April 27, 2015) — 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.
