“Here’s the budget…Auf wiedersehen!”

After attending Saturday’s Jefferson Jackson Dinner, Governor Bev Perdue heads to Munich, Germany this Sunday.

Perdue, who released her recommended $19 billion budget last Tuesday, now turns her attention to business recruitment during a seven day trade mission.germanflag

The NC Department of Commerce reports that about 150 German companies currently have operations in North Carolina, including Deutsche Bank and Siemens Energy.

The News and Observer reports that Perdue and First Gentleman Bob Eaves will pay their own airfare to Germany and back.

Governor Perdue will return to the Tar Heel state well before the legislative session begins.
