Walker meets with business leaders in Spain as European trade mission comes to an end

MADISON (AP) — Governor Scott Walker has met with business executives in northern Spain as his weeklong European trade mission is nearing an end.

Walker's office said Thursday, April 16th that the Republican addressed the business leaders already planning to expand into the United States at a round table discussion in the Basque Country. Walker has also spent time in Germany and France as part of this trip.

Walker also met with top executives at the global headquarters of Ingeteam, a manufacturer of industrial equipment for the energy, marine and rail markets. The company's North American operation is based in Milwaukee.

Walker is leaving the trade mission early so he can attend a political event this weekend in New Hampshire with other potential Republican presidential candidates.
