MUNCIE — City and county officials are preparing for their latest trip to China in search of economic development.
The September trip will be the first by local officials since June 2012 and one of the few that’s not part of a state economic development junket led by the governor.
“We’re firming up some final meetings,” Terry Murphy, vice president of the Muncie-Delaware County Economic Development Alliance, told The Star Press. “When we go, our days are full.”
Murphy, Brad Bookout of the Economic Development Alliance and Delaware County Commissioner James King will make the trip. Bookout represents the city, while King represents the county. The two governments will split the cost of the trip, which Murphy said had not yet been finalized. More here.
