“Investment by internationally owned automotive companies in Kentucky hit $1.8 billion, nearly 44 percent of the $4.1 billion total automotive-related investment this year.”
I want to offer my support for the Here for America initiative, which tells an important story about the global automotive industry, and how it is creating jobs and strong communities throughout the United States and in South Carolina.
Toyota Indiana will add 400 jobs and invest $600 million to meet the strong and growing demand for the Highlander midsize SUV.
Here for America tells the story of international automakers, their ever-growing impact on the U.S. economy, and the benefits they provide to local communities. The contributions of international automakers and dealers are integral to the success of today's U.S. auto industry, the most vibrant and competitive auto market in the world.
Here for America is an initiative of the Association of Global Automakers to increase public education about the importance of international automakers to American job creation, economic growth, technological innovation and strong communities.
