NOW: Evers talks manufacturing at conference in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Governor Tony Evers joined Foxconn officials in Milwaukee Thursday morning for the annual Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership Conference.

The theme of this year's conference is "Make It Happen" and the goal is to help Wisconsin manufacturers grow, be innovative, and achieve operational success.

Foxconn Executive Dr. Bill Mitchell delivered the keynote speech at the conference. He spoke about the vision for Foxconn in the future and offered advice about succeeding in manufacturing. There was some uncertainty about the Foxconn project in January after a report came out saying the company may shift away from its plans to build an assembly line in favor of more high-skilled tech jobs in Wisconsin, but later officials said the project would move forward as planned.

Governor Tony Evers also spoke at the conference and says the state needs to invest in transportation, education, technology, and economic development to grow as a state.

"If we truly care about making our state strong we'll need your help. It is very, very important to me as governor of the state of Wisconsin that we actually accomplish some things for the people of the state of Wisconsin.  As I said before whether it's education, health care, issues around economic development we have to make sure that, first of all, we operate in a system of civility and good dialogue, put politics aside and meet the needs of the people in Wisconsin," said Gov. Tony Evers (D) Wisconsin.

Evers will meet with legislators in the next week to discuss the budget and then it goes to the Joint Finance Committee.
