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.
Michigan Economic Development Corp. chief Greg Main is to accompany Granholm on the trip.
The European excursion is the governor's 11th overseas investment mission since 2004. She previously visited Austria, Belgium, Germany, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Italy and Sweden

    Who has done the report on the success of her previous trips. Some of them should have had some results.

    Boy....she is just traveling all over the world using up alot more of money that we dont have. Why havent these trips been cut out of the budget? Why dont these people ever come here? Dont you think that if they "were possibly interested in coming to Michigan" they would want to see it prior? You hardly never hear of others visiting our state on the news. 11 trips during her term? Gimme a break! I am just tired of Granholm spending alot of money unneccessarily in areas that could of been used elsewhere; like putting it back into our schools and colleges. NO child left behind...yeah right. No worker left behind...yeah right. These visits or talks could of been done video teleconferencing. Would save us taxpayors alot of money. Have a great WEEK LONG vacation Granholm. Nothing has ever come out of those other 10 overseas trips. Why is this one gonna be different? I think she needs to be held accountable and answer that. Otherwise, pay for these out of your own pocket not ours.
