INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is leading a group of business and community leaders on a jobs mission to the United Kingdom next month.

Pence’s office announced on Thursday the group will leave on July 12 and conclude the trip on July 16. They plan to attend the Farnborough International Airshow near London, where the state will have a booth. He says the aerospace industry is flourishing in Indiana.

He plans to meet with executives from some of the world’s most influential aviation and aerospace companies, including GE Aviation, Rolls-Royce, Alcoa, BAE Systems and Raytheon. He will also make calls to executives with agricultural processor Tate & Lyle, BP and steelmaker ArcelorMittal in London.

Pence’s office says the cost of the state delegation is being covered through private donations to the Indiana Economic Development Foundation.

Pence has made similar trips to Germany and Japan.
