WASHINGTON (WEAU) -- The Trump Administration said the president is looking forward to coming to Wisconsin this week for the Foxconn groundbreaking.
It's taking place on Thursday at the Foxconn site in Mount Pleasant.
The White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley says the president is expected to make remarks focused on job creation.
Foxconn says it expects to employ 13,000 people at its facility and 10,000 construction jobs.
Gidley says the electronics giant will be a great asset to the state.
"Just think about all the people coming in not just as employees, but all other businesses that build off an anchor business like Foxconn. Now you're going to be the center and hub of electronic creation, this is an important investment not just for the world also for Wisconsin," said Gidley.
The company hopes to be operational late next year.
