Secretary Wilbur Ross Discusses Foxconn Wisconsin Development – The “High-Tech Innovation hub”…

From the office of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross: The groundbreaking on Foxconn’s $10-billion factory to produce state-of-the-art flat-panel displays in Mount Pleasant represents a milestone for America.

With a 20-million-square-foot campus situated on 3,000 acres, the new Foxconn plant will be among the largest factories ever built in the United States. It will take two years and 10,000 construction workers to build, and employ 13,000 workers when in full production of a variety of LCD screens. It is one of the largest foreign direct investments ever made in the United States.

It would never have happened without the promise of the Trump tax cuts and the President’s personal intervention.

As important as the new factory is to the workers of Wisconsin, the facility is also a symbol of what is to come: It is the first of a large number of investments in advanced manufacturing facilities being reshored from overseas locations back to the United States.

Foxconn CEO Terry Gou has already said that he is considering another enormous facility in the United States.

The active role President Trump and his administration have taken in economic development was another deciding factor. President Trump met with Mr. Gou more than half a dozen times over the last 14 months, impressing upon him the benefits of creating jobs in the United States, and producing in a market of 325 million consumers.

Those meetings were followed with weekly calls between Trump administration officials and Foxconn executives.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was instrumental as well in selling the virtues of Wisconsin as a business-friendly state and providing the financial incentives needed to seal the deal that will create a large-scale high-tech innovation hub.

The Trump administration understands how important it is to rebuild the U.S. consumer electronics manufacturing sector. The United States still leads in the creation of innovative, high-tech products such as semiconductors, state-of-the art materials and components, parts and software, but it must regain its footing in the large-scale production of consumer electronics.

With advanced manufacturing techniques including robotics, the United States is now competitive with factories in low-wage countries and is an attractive place for investment.

The administration’s business-friendly tax, trade and regulatory policies have tilted the playing field in favor of the United States, but other attributes of doing business in America are contributing to a renaissance in U.S. manufacturing. Among these are the costs of transportation from foreign factories; the need to produce new products in real time to changing consumer demands; rising foreign wage rates; increasing risks associated with producing in foreign markets; strong U.S. intellectual property protections; the establishment of new U.S. apprenticeship and technical training programs; the availability of top technology talent; and the quality of life in America in pristine places like Wisconsin.

Moreover, rebuilding the consumer electronics industry provides researchers in U.S. universities and laboratories with an avenue to commercialize their R&D. And it reinvigorates the large U.S. industrial base of innovative high-tech companies. For every new job created by Foxconn three to four jobs will be created in the supply chain, not to mention the hundreds of jobs supported in local communities.

Since President Trump took office, more than 300,000 new manufacturing jobs have been created in the United States. Last year, the U.S. experienced the net addition of more than 4,000 new factories, after suffering the loss of 65,000 factories between 2001 and 2013.

President Trump promised to fix the tax system; he promised to fix the regulatory system; and he promised to fix trade. We are now seeing tangible results from his delivering on these promises.

        Suspect Turk’s micro gig economy relationship between MSN and activism BOTS may have come under the spot light of the Russia collusion narrative by following the money.

        It is too complicated to explain in sound bite terms. The gist of it is Turk’s connection to trolling may have been exposed in the metadata of ISPs and timestamps analysis of MSN commentary postings; from which content owners would monetized as measured sample population statistics to influence public policy, ie measured metrics that can be cited within demographic marketing to shape public policy.

        This is a possible answer to…

        “Have not noticed many trolls lately. Did daddy Soros cut off the funding because it was not working?”

        Yes the funding was cut off, because the funding was at risk of exposing the role 501PACs funding of trolling bots has with MSM leftist culture through Turk.

        Remember Turk it is a Jeff Bozos, ie Washington Post entity.

        Yes, it sounds way out there in twilightland, however if understood in terms of a business model it is not so far fetched.

        Every go to a MSN news article and read the commentary. Say, someone posts something erudite or introspective or contrarian to the news article, which was then buried in a flame war, well my observation is that a bot was paid to bury the post(push it down the chain) while at the same time disrupt or fragment the conversation by injecting bias and stereotyping characterization designed to push the buttons of others. The result was typically non-discourse conversations, from which population stats are extracted to paint a reinforcing narrative.

          Is it any wonder we can not connect with ‘real people’ distractors. Now, extrapolate that any giving issue, AND there are hundreds of them. Then interject an issue for which there should should be common cause, say the FACT WE’RE TWENTY F’ING DOLLARS IN DEBT… What does sexual orientation or views of 2nd amendment, or abortion or etc have to with that fact. Now try to build concenus.

          Now ask what is the social value of trolling to ideologues?

    Having those electronics manufacturers here in the US again, will also help in building our Space Force.

    I am sure that Sec Wilbur knows this…since he is overseeing our new Space Program.
    It’s all connected.
    One sector feeds the other.

    “No bucks, No Buck Rogers.”
    And it takes more than just funding to have a vibrant Space Program.
    When our rocket scientists and systems developers figure out what they ‘need’…they need industries to build those new parts for them.
    And those components need to built Here.

    Nice piece by our Commerce Secretary.
    Wilbur Ross is the best ComSec that we’ve ever had, IMHO.

    Sec Ross knows that if you create a business-friendly haven for Industries…they will come.
    He knows what is attractive to them.

    Lowering taxes and slashing punitive regulations is good.
    But having a govt that will protect them from the unfair trade practices of other countries, is also a big deal.

    “Protectionism” is only a ‘bad thing’ in the minds of globalists.
    It is a good thing, if you are a business that just wants to make a good product and be treated fairly.

    It’s like having a Commercial Building.
    You make it attractive to business tenants by serving their needs and making it a hospitable place for those tenants to flourish.

    Our President knows this very well.
    He is turning our country into a Hospitable Place for Business.
    And he picked the perfect guy for his Commerce Secretary, to help him do this.

      Look for the next phase to be eliminating the deficit. Increased tax revenue and trade revenues will give the President a chance to greatly reduce the deficit. Once we get the trade and tax thing running, then he’ll attack spending. He’s already nibbling at the edges but after 2020, he’ll take a huge bite out of the DC spending habit. Look for it!!

        +BlackKnightRides – brother, the MoCo has been planning this for decades! They saw years ago that Tariffs, VAT’s, Import Duties, and rising shipping costs for assembled bikes were killing their overseas sales so they started building assembly plants in the countries where the markets were! They already HAVE plants overseas serving the markets in the countries and areas they are in (where they have been allowed to by laws, and standing dealer agreements)! It is NOTHING NEW! What the MSM writers WANT YOU TO BELIEVE is that HD is going to produce American sold bikes overseas, and then ship them back to America. The MSM did not come right out and say it, but the writers wrote the articles so that you, and other readers, would assume it was going to happen! Which has never been the MoCo’s plan. Most of the bikes made outside of the USA we cannot even see info on at our local dealer, let alone buy one here! The two newest ones that I saw before I retired, the 500 cc, & 750 cc models had been made for a long time in Europe, but were not available in American markets. When they decided to maybe TRY and market them in the US they “debuted” their ‘new models’ at the Italian show just a few years ago, along with the electric bike. All they (the MSM & Libtards) are doing is using the fact that HD is expanding their overseas production to meet overseas demands, to find a way to ‘blame’ this overseas business expansion on President Trump’s policies. Which, if you dig into it … just simply isn’t true. The reported “plant closing & size reductions” in America HD factories are a direct result of a product sales loss to competitors who are now producing good quality, good running, and good looking bikes, with a far cheaper cost. HD has been losing ‘American market share’ for sometime, and the pinch was bound to hit them in the wallet sooner, or later. The MoCo saw this coming, and acted accordingly! At one time, for many decades, they were “the only deal in town for a great quality bike, made in America”. I had to WAIT 6 months for my first new HD back in the day – after paying CASH for it when I ORDERED it! Sadly, that just isn’t so anymore. The MoCo’s business in America is suffering, and badly bleeding money – so they are expanding overseas to fill in the revenue gap, that’s all this announcement is saying. It is good business to expand where your market is, and still be able to use your world wide ‘brand recognition’ to keep the bottom line black! I closely followed what the MoCo was doing for decades, when I made a good portion of my living writing on all things ‘HD Big Twin’ for more than one magazine, and newspaper in the US. PLEASE do your own research, and don’t believe the MSM hype!

    I live in Green Bay and work in a corporate engineering role for a large consumer products company. The new Foxconn plant is sucking up tremendous amounts of engineering resources and will soon require massive construction crews. The state’s unemployment is already less than 3%, and the lack of skilled employees is holding back manufacturing here. I honestly don’t know how all of these positions will be filled, but I would rather have this problem than the alternative.

    Believe it or not, the Democrats running against Governor Walker this fall are campaigning on promises to shut down the factory. Our state senator from Green Bay, Dave Hansen, said in an interview last summer that we shouldn’t manufacture here anymore. For a state that has some of the proudest histories of manufacturing of any state in the country, it is a bewildering response.

    As for the incentives we gave, they are significant. It could be worth up to $4.5 billion if the production and labor projections are met. I am not happy we gave away so much, but I think something had to be done to move manufacturing back to this country. If this becomes a 21st century hub of high tech activity, it will be worth the price. I’d rather have this factory than the ugly $4 billion dollar football stadium that LA is building for the Rams and Chargers.

      Crossthread, I know exactly how you feel. I have always had the worst timing. Had to take an early retirement for health reasons. I want so badly to get back in the game, now that the manager isn’t tanking the team at every step….
      I get another round of the shots in two weeks…. Who knows???
      Hang in there, buddy.

    I vaguely recall some putz saying, and I paraphrase a bit. “Those jobs aren’t coming back…..”
    No, Mr President, I am not yet tired of winning.
    Keep it up, and that putz I was referring to will become an even more distant bad memory.

    To begin to get real, again ( post Ron Reagon) Scott Walker repetitively ran for Governor in WI and had repetitive political battles on a host of issues in the early stages of turning this country away from progressivism, statism, liberalism.
    Remember the WI dem legislators departing the state and remember the disrespectful crowds placing pressures in their statehouse.

    The voters spoke (against rising WI. debt, unbalanced budget etc. etc) and subsequently the office holders, with fortitude, resolve and better sense voted accordingly
    (instead of misbehaving like rino$…i.e. campaign conservative to trick voters, coyly slide lefty when in office).

    Scott W had a winning formula, and Taxed Enough Already (TEA) had a winning formula some years ago (to counter the s…and it still is and can be for others too.

    I hope some of those screens they make are a return to matte. I’m holding onto TVs with that feature, as I don’t feel like I’m looking in a mirror when there are low-light scenes.

    The Left tries to give credit to Obama for growing out of the Great Recession but they don’t seem to understand that after the financial meltdown, the bar was set so low, the economy could not go anywhere but up of its own accord. In fact, Obama did exactly the opposite of what he should have done to generate the kind of growth typical of post recessions. He clogged up the economic pipeline with regulations and a general anti-business atmosphere (You didn’t build that). We can thank him for that as it set Trump up perfectly. Trump came in and did all the things Obama should have done making tax code business friendly and eliminating Obama’s regulations. TRUMP IS THE ECONOMIC ROTO-ROOTER MAN ELIMINATING THE CLOG FROM THE ECONOMIC PIPELINE. We have seen, are seeing and will see the results of his actions.
