Gov. Phil Murphy will be heading to India later this year as part of what he's billing as an economic mission.
The governor announced Monday he will take the weeklong, six-city trip in September.
It's his second overseas trip and will be the third country he's visited as governor. He went to Germany and Israel in October.
Murphy said he will meet with government officials and leaders from life sciences and technology industries, among others.
“This will be our opportunity to sit down with our Indian business partners to chart a course for even deeper direct investment in New Jersey and new partnerships with New Jersey-based companies and institutions of higher education,” the governor said.
Murphy says Indian-Americans are the state's largest group of foreign-born residents and India is the state's second-biggest foreign direct investor.
A private industry-funded economic development organization called Choose NJ is financing the trip.
Along with Murphy, first lady Tammy Murphy, Choose NJ CEO Jose Lozano and others are expected to attend.
The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
