Foxconn leaders, Wisconsin officials meet; details unclear

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Foxconn Technology Group executives are in Wisconsin meeting with government officials.

State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos tweeted Wednesday that he and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald met with the Taiwanese electronics giant’s chairman, Young Liu, Vice Chairman Jay Lee and U.S. strategist Alan Yeung. Vos said they got an update on company plans. He didn’t elaborate.

Foxconn spokeswoman Myranda Tanck issued a statement saying only that Liu is meeting with Gov. Tony Evers and state and local officials.

Evers’ spokeswoman, Melissa Baldauff, confirmed the governor met separately with the Foxconn executives. She said Evers wants to build a relationship with Liu, who took over as chairman this summer after former chairman Terry Gou decided to run for president in Taiwan. She didn’t offer any further details.

Foxconn is building a flat-screen manufacturing plant in Mount Pleasant.

This story has been updated to correct that the plant is being built in Mount Pleasant, not Pleasant Prairie.
