JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is heading to France as part of a delegation attending the Paris Air Show.

Nixon’s office says he will leave Friday and return to Missouri on June 17. He’s one of at least a half-dozen U.S. governors going to the international trade show for the aerospace industry.

Nixon is scheduled to meet with leaders from companies such as Boeing and GKN Aerospace that already have Missouri facilities or are considering expanding in the state. He also plans to meet with France-based manufacturers that do business in Missouri.

Officials from several Missouri businesses are going along on the trip.

The expenses for the governor and first lady Georganne Nixon will be covered by the Hawthorn Foundation, a nonprofit economic development group that is financed by businesses.
