INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana House Democratic Leader Scott Pelath from Michigan City is part of a delegation led by Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb that is going to Europe to attract potential jobs and investments to our state.

The mission, which runs through June 22, will see the Indiana group visit Hungary and France. Pelath will be joining the governor and others in Paris, where the delegation plans to meet with, among others, officials with Arconic, which operates facilities in LaPorte.

“Our goal here is to bring the world the message that Indiana is a place where businesses should invest their money and create jobs,” Pelath said. “Economic development is not a partisan issue. All of us want to see Hoosiers get and retain good-paying jobs, and I am pleased to be joining the governor on this mission to sell the world on Indiana.

”Indiana is a state of great diversity—economically, culturally, and geographically. Even better, we each take great pride in different facets of our home. I am gratified that our delegation will reflect enthusiasm for a wide array of Indiana’s strengths as a business partner,” he concluded.
