You are here
An American Renewal
Thank you all very much. I come to the Economic Club because of your kind invitation and come to Michigan because of its proud heritage and its promising future.
I believe that Michigan can partner with GE to create the next wave of economic progress. That's why earlier today, I stood with your governor and U.S. senators to announce a major new investment in your state.
General Electric's Manufacturing Technology and Software Center will be built right here and bring over 1,100new jobs to Michigan. The engineers in our Van Buren Township facility will be developing technologies that can change people's lives-clean energy, better transportation, affordable healthcare. Workers who might have made cars in the past will be bringing GE technology to life rebuilding our economy.
