Gov. Whitmer visits Europe to attract jobs, investments, & high-tech supply chains for Michigan

Governor Gretchen Whitmer is in Europe, where she is on a one week trip in France and Germany.

Whitmer tweeted Monday, talking about Michigan’s economy, good-paying jobs, and more.

According to her office, Whitmer’s goal is to bring jobs, investments, and high-tech supply chains back to Michigan from overseas.

“I will go anywhere, work with anyone, and compete with everyone to grow Michigan’s economy, bring supply chains home, and create good-paying, high-skilled jobs across our state,” Whitmer said. “We are taking this opportunity to tell Michigan’s incredible story, build relationships that bring more jobs, investments, and the supply chain to Michigan, and spend time with the dedicated servicemembers deployed in the region to protect national security. Let’s keep working together to show the world that Michigan is the best place to live, work, and invest.”

The governor posted a photo to her Twitter of her first stop of the journey.

Whitmer said she met with leaders in the hydrogen industry to discuss positioning Michigan as a leader in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

The use of hydrogen can help the state reach its climate goals, Whitmer said.
