Governor Ivey leads Alabama team in talks with Japanese automakers

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Governor Kay Ivey is leading a small team of Alabama economic development specialists on a business development mission to Japan for high-level meetings with leaders of global automakers Toyota, Mazda and Honda.

The Alabama delegation is departing for Japan today and will return on Thursday following appointments in Tokyo. The mission’s strategic goal is to facilitate growth in the state’s automotive sector and extend relationships with the manufacturers.

“The auto industry has been a key driver of economic growth in Alabama for two decades, and we want to make sure we’re positioned to see that growth accelerate in coming years,” Governor Ivey said.

“It’s important that we work closely with these automakers to ensure they thrive in Alabama because that will bring more jobs and investment to the state.”
