INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Mike Pence heads on his latest foreign trade mission Saturday.

Pence said Wednesday he’s headed to England and the Farnborough Air Show in an effort to build on the growing aerospace industry in Indiana. WISH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/VM8M6Q ) he plans to meet with more than a dozen companies and will be one of five governors in attendance.

Pence says the air show draws the chairmen and the CEOs of companies into one place. He says he expects to have a number of high-level meetings and to begin build some relationships.

Pence says that executives at GE Aviation encouraged him to attend the air show. GE recently announced plans to build a new engine factory in Lafayette.
