Gregg wants to see more Indiana products shipped overseas.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Gregg Thursday unveiled an eight-point plan aimed at increasing the state’s total exports by 50 percent in five years.

Gregg applauded the work of Governor Daniels in expanding Indiana’s global presence and says as governor, his policies would further that work.

Those include coordinating statewide export strategies, developing tax incentives for Hoosier businesses that export at least 75 percent of their products and creating an export innovation fund that would provide money to trade associations and private businesses.

“Coming up with a strategy that promotes and identifies Hoosier products…Hoosier as a brand internationally. And let me tell you, if you can brand a mustache in a political campaign, we can brand Hoosier products around the world.”

Gregg says he also wants to build a Midwest trade alliance in which neighboring states coordinate trade missions and efforts.
