Today, on June 13, Governor of the State of Georgia Brian P. Kemp and First Lady Marty Kemp will lead a delegation of state officials on an international mission, beginning in the country of Georgia, its capital of Tbilisi, and ending in Paris, France.
This visit marks the first time a sitting U.S. governor has visited the country of Georgia, as Governor Kemp demonstrates the state’s commitment to this ally in the face of territorial aggression from neighboring Russia. The overall mission will focus on reinforcing strategic partnerships, while promoting economic development opportunities with industries in Europe.
“I’m looking forward to visiting the brave National Guardsmen stationed in the country of Georgia, as we meet with officials in that country to reinforce our commitment to our partnership with their military,” said the Governor. “That partnership has endured for over 28 years, as we remain a friend and ally to freedom-loving people around the world. I’m also eager to promote our No. 1 state for business to the job creators and major industry leaders we’ll meet during this busy trip. In all of the back-to-back conversations, we’ll be able to share why Georgia is the best state in which to invest and bring opportunity,” Kemp noted.
