Iowa Governor In Kosovo

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad is in the midst of a trip to Europe that began with the signing of a sister-state agreement with Kosovo and will end with meetings with the “decision-makers” of dozens of European companies.

Iowa Economic Development Authority director Debi Durham is on the trip, too, and she says these are “high-level” meetings.

Durham is scheduled to return to Kosovo in October, to travel the country with its ambassador to the U.S.┬áBranstad describes Kosovo as a “young, dynamic country” that’s made “great economic progress” since Kosovo declared its independence five years ago.
