Dayton Embarking on Overseas Trip 10 Jun 13

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is embarking this
week on his latest overseas trade trip with stops planned in Germany,
Sweden and Norway.

Dayton will be gone this Wednesday through Friday of the following
week. The delegation of 35 people from the public and private sectors
has meetings planned with counterparts in the three countries that are
key export markets for Minnesota.

Germany, for instance, is Minnesota’s fifth-largest export
destination. The private business representatives in Dayton’s
delegation, including his two sons, are paying their own way. It will
be the Democratic governor’s third official trip overseas after a 2011
mission to South Korea and Japan and a 2012 trip to China.
