Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels is in Japan for the rest of the week, trying to drum up jobs for the Hoosier state. The 39th annual U.S. Midwest-Japan Association conference began Sunday in Tokyo. Over the past three years, 28 Japanese companies have invested more than $1.3 billion and Daniels said more projects are in the works. During an interview with the Governor, one business journalist said Indiana and Honda often come up together in coverage of the automotive industry. Tuesday Daniels is scheduled to participate in an Indiana agriculture event. He will also speak with the chairman of the Sony advisory board and travel to Honda to meet with company executives.
