Gov. Scott Walker was in Washington D.C. Thursday to participate in the U.S. Department of Commerce Select USA Summit with Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Foxconn executive Louis Woo, making the case on why companies should invest in Wisconsin, according to the governor's office.
Walker was one of several governors invited to the White House for lunch with President Donald Trump and Vice President Pence where they also discussed the opioid epidemic and economic and workforce development.
Walker highlighted Wisconsin’s leading edge policies that are fighting the opioid epidemic, as well as Wisconsin's all-time low unemployment rate of 2.8 percent, and the state's strong investments in worker training, according to the governor's office.
Trump is expected to come to Wisconsin next week for the Foxconn groundbreaking, although details on the day and time are still not firm.
Trump was in Minnesota Wednesday for a jobs roundtable and rally after earlier signing his executive order ending his administration's policy of separating families detained at the southern border.
