Corbett heads to France and Germany for trade mission

    Pa. Gov. Tom Corbett is spending Spring Break abroad.

    While college students party it up amid palm trees, Corbett will lead a trade mission to France and Germany, according to the Philadelphia Business Journal.

    He’ll be accompanied by Rajant Corp. CEO Bob Schena of Malvern.

    The two foreign countries make up Pennsylvania’s fourth-largest export market. In 2010 along, Pennsylvania sent more than $767 million of goods and services to France and more than $1.4 billion to Germany.

    The trip is scheduled for March 18-23.
