ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Martin O’Malley is scheduled to leave for a trade mission to India with a stop in Qatar on the front end of the trip.
The governor is leaving Friday with more than 100 business leaders, educators and state officials.
Before arriving in Hyderabad, India, on Monday, O’Malley will stop in Qatar to explore foreign direct investment opportunities.
The trip also will include stops in Mumbai and New Delhi. The goal is to raise awareness about economic opportunities for companies to pursue in Maryland, develop export opportunities and expand educational ties.
O’Malley is scheduled to return Dec. 4. Maryland first lady Katie O’Malley, a Baltimore judge, also is going to visit with
court officials in hopes of creating a judicial partnership.
