Gov. Jennifer Granholm is leaving for France and Sweden, where she plans to meet with executives from companies possibly looking to expand or establish a presence in Michigan.
The Democratic governor is leaving Thursday for the weeklong investment mission.
During the France portion of the trip, she's expected to visit with car companies at the Paris Motor Show. In Sweden, Granholm is to speak at a conference on sustainable cities and meet with King Carl XVI Gustaf.
