Governor Greg Abbott plans to lead a week-long economic development trip to two of the state's trade partners in the Far East. Abbott and his delegation will meet with business leaders and politicians in three Japanese cities and in Seoul, South Korea. Japan is the fifth largest market for Texas exports, and Texas trails only California in its imports from Japan. Toyota, Kubota, and Mitsubishi have their U.S. headquarters in Texas, and more than 400 other Japanese companies do business here as well. Abbott leaves Texas on Saturday and will return on September 27th.
