Gov. Bill Haslam will travel to Asia next week in an effort to increase foreign investment opportunities.
The 10-day trip, scheduled to begin on May 2 and estimated to cost $120,000, will include stops in Korea, China and Japan.
During the trip, Haslam will be joined by Economic Development Commissioner Randy Boyd and the two will meet with executives of existing business partners and work to expand the state's relationship with Asian businesses.
The delegation will also include three members of the economic development business team, a communications officer and one member of the international economic development team, said Clint Brewer, a spokesman for the department.
