Gov. Nikki Haley is making a trade trip to India in November, returning for the first time since she was a toddler to the country where her parents were born.

The South Carolina Department of Commerce announced Monday that Haley will spend about 10 days in India. She'll try and get Indian companies to bring factories and jobs to the state and open up opportunities for South Carolina companies to export items to the country.

Commerce Secretary Bobby Hitt says there are no plans right now for the governor's husband, children or parents to join her. He says the trip will cost about $50,000

The trip will include a visit to Punjab, the Indian state where Haley's parents were born. They came to the U.S. before her birth.
