ATLANTA (AP) – Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal and other officials are heading to Germany to promote the state.
The delegation leaves Saturday and returns a week later. Georgia Department of Economic Development spokeswoman Katie McCreary says they plan to visit companies with connections to Georgia.
Georgia is home to the U.S. headquarters for Porsche Cars North America and Mercedes-Benz among other companies with operations here and in Germany.
The visit comes at a tumultuous time for Europe, following British voters’ support for leaving the European Union in a June referendum. Germany is among the largest members of the EU.
McCreary says the vote had no impact on the trip agenda.
Germany tops the list of foreign countries importing goods to Georgia and it’s among the top 15 exporting goods from the state.
