Governor Jennifer Granholm met with Toyota Motor executives Monday. It was the start of a tour of Japan to invite Japanese automotive investment to her state. Gov Granholm is pitching the state's automotive workforce and education system in hopes that Japanese companies will set up shop there. Granholms trip will include stops in Osaka and Tokyo. There are plans to meet with 22 companies as well as holding seminars for another 150 organizations.

However, with a sagging economy and the problems of Ford and GM it makes sense to diversify a bit.
