Who just returned from a trip to India last week?
Five Little Rock men involved in economic development went to the Asian nation to work with an India-based corporation that manufactures pipes. The company is looking to locate a $60 million to $80 million plant at the Little Rock Port that could employ up to 250 workers.
Making the journey were Paul Latture, executive director of the Little Rock Port Authority; Jay Chesshir, president and chief executive officer of the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce; Mike Maulden, director of external affairs for Entergy Arkansas and chairman of the LR Port Authority; Mitch Chandler, communication section leader for the Arkansas Depart-ment of Economic Development; and Joey Dean, vice president of economic development for the Little Rock chamber.
So, was the trip successful? We're told to expect an announcement "sooner than later."
