Gov. Quinn planning trip to Brazil in September

| No Comments

Gov. Pat Quinn told me Tuesday his next foreign visit is to three cities in Brazil, set for late September, "that's our hope."

"We have an excellent relationship with Brazil, our state. The University of Illinois is the only university in the county with a Brazilian studies program, so we are going to have some people from U of I come. There is a real opportunity for educational exchange," Quinn said. Brazil sends 100,000 students abroad so "we want to get a lot of them to come to Illinois."
