Massachusetts governor embarking on trade mission

 

The Associated Press

Gov. Deval Patrick is hitting the road again, this time for a trade mission to Denmark, the United Kingdom and France.

Patrick said the goal of the six-day trip — from Sept. 14-19 — is to expand opportunities between Massachusetts and the European countries in the innovation economy, clean tech, digital gambling, financial services, and education sectors.

Patrick will be joined by cabinet secretaries, academic officials and business leaders on the trip.

The trade mission includes stops in Copenhagen, London, Paris and Lyon, France. It is Patrick's fourth major trade mission this year.

In his first term, Patrick embarked on a single trade mission to China.

Since winning re-election in 2010, Patrick has visited Israel, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Colombia, Ireland, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Panama, Mexico and the United Arab Emirates.

Helt arrived 45 minutes late for his arraignment Tuesday, Sept. 16, on a charge that he violated his probation in Oregon. He gained worldwide attention last month when Cyrus let him accept her award for video of the year. It was later learned that Helt was wanted in Oregon for a probation violation stemming from a 2010 arrest.

FILE - In this Feb. 7, 2014, file photo, President Barack Obama speaks about the farm bill at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich.

As a result, it's unclear if the law will realize the estimated $8.6 billion in savings over 10 years that the GOP had touted.
