State Rep. Bob Peterson was among those making the trip to the middle eastern nation.
State Representative Bob Peterson has returned from the nation of Turkey on a state trade mission.
The middle east nation of Turkey has seen 10% GNP growth in the past year and Ohio is attempting to get some of their trade business.
Peterson says they also took the opportunity to promote possibilities of director air-cargo trade to the now-vacant Wilmington Air Park in Clinton County.
The air park lost thousands of jobs when DHL Cargo pulled out of the facility a few years ago. State economic development officials have been trying to get a tenant for the site since then.
