Wisconsin’s top elected officials met with Foxconn Technology Group executives on Wednesday. As for what they discussed, not much is known. A Foxconn spokeswoman issued a statement saying only that Foxconn Chairman Young Liu was meeting with Governor Tony Evers, state and local officials, and members of Wisconsin’s higher education community.
Evers’ spokeswoman, Melissa Baldauff, said Evers met separately with the Foxconn execs. She told the Wisconsin State Journal that Evers wants to build a relationship with Liu, who took over after former chairman Terry Gou decided to run for president in Taiwan.
