Lansing, Michigan (WNDU) – On Wednesday, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced he will be joining a five-day mission to Norway and Switzerland with a focus on bringing jobs and business investment back to Michigan.
During his stay in Norway, Governor Whitmer will meet in Oslo with government and business leaders focused on the mobility and hydrogen industries.
“The world is increasingly interconnected, and Michigan will play a key role on the world stage, especially as we lead the future of mobility, bring supply chains home, and become cleaner and energy independent. It is important to hear from other national leaders that we are fulfilling our national supply needs,” Governor Whitmer said in a press release. “We are taking this opportunity to tell the story of Michigan around the world, along with other national leaders and decision makers. I will go anywhere and compete with everyone to bring home jobs and investments Show the world what we have to offer and leadership in cars, chips and clean energy and prove that the best manufacturing in the world happens right here in Michigan.”
After Norway, Governor Whitmer will attend the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting and speak at a panel entitled “Manufacturing Revives.”
This is the first visit to Norway by the governor of Michigan, and the first since his trip to Switzerland in 2016.
