DOVER, Del. (AP) - Gov. Jack Markell is in the midst of a week long trip to build business and diplomatic ties with Japan and Korea.
After a business visit Monday in Tokyo, Markell planned to travel to Miyagi Prefecture, Delaware's sister state, to sign an exchange agreement with Miyagi Governor Yoshihiro Murai recognizing 15 years of sister-state relations between Delaware and Miyagi.
Markell, who began the trip Friday, is accompanied by Agriculture Secretary Ed Kee and representatives from the Delaware Department of State.
