ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty is heading to Europe this weekend.

Pawlenty’s office says he flies to Madrid Sunday and on to London on Wednesday as part of a trade mission.

The Republican governor says exports are a bright spot in the state’s economy and the trip will allow him to promote Minnesota businesses and encourage foreign investment.

His itinerary includes meetings with the Spanish foreign minister, the British foreign policy adviser and minister of state and U.S. ambassadors to both countries. He is also giving two speeches.


His office says the American Chamber of Commerce in Spain and the London-based Atlantic Partnership will cover the trip’s costs.
