Gov. Steve Beshear leaves for Europe tomorrow to meet with overseas businesses interested in starting operations in Kentucky.

Beshear will showcase the commonwealth’s advantages in Germany, Spain and Austria and meet with European companies already established in Kentucky. European businesses employ nearly 26,000 Kentuckians. Twenty percent of new jobs announced last year in the commonwealth were from foreign-owned companies, including those coming to Fulton with Kayser Automotive Systems.
