Governor Bruce Rauner was in Germany and Poland for two weeks and returned saying his trade mission will bring thousands of jobs to the state. According to Rauner even with the state’s financial problems the state is a good position for economic growth. But for now he has little in concrete announcements about jobs being created from the trip. He says new jobs and opportunity for Illinois will be revealed this summer.
Poland has very little presence for its businesses in the United States and Rauner says that Chicago and Illinois should be the place where those companies come to establish headquarters.
