President Trump, Terry Gou, Speaker Ryan greet Wisconsin LCD plant

It is not clear how many jobs the factory will create.

Made in America week was something the White House announced last week and it quickly seemed most of the effort to focus on the topic was sidetracked by other issues including the Obamacare repeal effort. Speaker Vos joined President Donald Trump, Speaker Paul Ryan, Governor Scott Walker and company officials for the announcement at the White House.

"We thank President Trump and Governor Walker for their work to bring Foxconn to Wisconsin". Gou has since spoken of moving operations to the United States, but has never gone through with his plans.

Based in Taiwan, Foxconn will build its plant in Ryan's district in the southeastern part of the state. It has yet to be built.

Walker said Wisconsin will provide Foxconn with $3 billion in incentives, half of which will go to capital costs and the other half to workforce development.

The White House would not say what tax incentives were offered to entice the company, but local media reported a package of around $3 billion in tax breaks.

Trump told the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday that Apple chief executive Tim Cook has committed to build three big manufacturing plants in the US. "ORCRP001070-topic.html" class="local_link" >Apple Inc. has committed to build three "big" manufacturing plants in the USA, although Apple did not announce that, nor did the company respond to a request for comment. It's unclear where such plants would be located, how many people they would employ and which products they would produce.

In January, shortly after Trump's inauguration, Gou floated the idea of a US-based display-making plant for Sharp, which it acquired previous year, in a deal that could be worth as much as $7 billion.
