Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno, acting today because Gov. Chris Christie is out of state, met with European Union Ambassador David O’Sullivan in Trenton today, where the two discussed economic relations between New Jersey and the EU’s member nations.
“Cutting red tape and finding ways to make it easier to do business in the state has been my focus from the start. And oftentimes, those efforts involve improving relations with foreign nations and markets,” Guadagno said in a statement from the governor’s office. “I am proud to work with our partners in the EU to ensure that New Jersey’s business community has greater access to international markets.”
Christie was in Ames, Iowa, today unveiling an education plan that proposes letting students pay down their loans with community service and withholding federal aid to colleges that refuse to provide more transparency in their finances. The trip comes on the eve of what many expect to be a forthcoming presidential campaign announcement.
