Governor Doyle is optimistic about Asian dollars coming to Wisconsin. As he continues his Trade Mission in Asia, Doyle said he’s been informing Japanese government and business leaders of the research and labor resources available in the Badger State.
Doyle is looking to build on existing Wisconsin exports of health care technology to China and Japan. The Governor visited Japanese hospitals that were using equipment from Milwaukee’s GE-Healthcare and Madison-based Tomo Therapy.
Doyle also plugged Wisconsin’s alternative energy capabilities, something that Japan is pursuing as their economy has been slowing down due in part to lagging auto sales.
The Asian nation must do further adjusting as a new prime minister takes over this week. The ruling conservative party, which had been dominant for more than 50 years, was recently defeated by a center-left party.
Governor Doyle will be China Wednesday.
