New Wisconsin website tracks Foxconn news
Gov. Scott Walker today announced the launch of a new website, wisconnvalley.wi.gov, to provide residents and businesses with the latest information about the Foxconn Technology Group's investment in Wisconsin.
Along with the launch of the website, state and local partners are announcing the first resource fair for construction workers on March 29 at Festival Hall in Racine. Individuals interested in construction work for Foxconn or the surrounding infrastructure development will get information to understand the opportunities and qualifications associated with the project in addition to connecting with additional resources to assist with becoming fully qualified when opportunities become available.
In addition, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), in partnership with the state’s regional economic development organizations, will host informational sessions for construction contractors around the state that will provide potential subcontractors, suppliers, and vendors with details on how they may be able to support the Foxconn construction project.
The meetings will be held in Appleton, Eagle River, Eau Claire, Janesville, La Crosse, Madison, Milwaukee, Racine, Platteville, Superior and Wausau, according to Walker's office. Dates and times have yet to be announced.
