RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is headed to Europe next week for a whirlwind trade mission across the continent.

The governor’s office announced Friday he’ll be headed to United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Sweden, France, and Belgium as part of an 11-day tour.

McAuliffe’s wife and various aides will be going along too.

The governor said in a statement that he expects to close “multiple significant deals” as result of the trip.

McAuliffe has made economic development - and luring businesses to Virginia in particular - a top priority.
