The trip is planned for Oct. 15-19 and is being organized by the Tulsa Metro Chamber.

The companies the group plans to meet with are not named _ but Fallin's office says they include aerospace, energy and manufacturing industries.

Airfare and lodging for the governor and her staff is to be paid for by the Oklahoma Business Roundtable _ a state economic development organization.
