DENVER (CBS4) – World leaders met in Switzerland to talk about improving economic development and Gov. John Hickenlooper is there.

The governor says he’s accomplished more in one day on his economic trip to Switzerland than he could in weeks in Colorado.

Leaders are talking about education, financial development and global competition.

On the CBS4 Morning News Hickenlooper talked about why his trip is so important to the state.

“We’re continuing to meet pretty much every day; filled with meetings with CEOs or senior executives from companies that have some operations in Colorado and companies that might want to begin starting operations,” Hickenlooper said.

Listen to the whole interview in the video clip below:

Hickenlooper says he paid for the trip himself.
