West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin is heading to Great Britain and Ireland on an investment trip.

Tomblin's office says in a news release that the trip starts Friday and lasts through Oct. 22.

The governor will focus both on companies currently doing business in West Virginia as well as those he'd like to make investments in the Mountain State.

The statement says Tomblin will conduct meetings in London along with Belfast in Northern Ireland and Dublin in the Irish Republic.

It will mark Tomblin's fifth international trip, including two to Japan.
