Automotive interviews from the 2023 Mackinac Policy Conference: Bill Ford Jr., supplier CEO Ron Hall Jr.
The 2023 Mackinac Policy Conference is underway at the Grand Hotel on Michigan's Mackinac Island. It's a marquee gathering of political, business, and nonprofit leaders in a state that is home to nearly 19 percent of all U.S. auto production -- more than any state in the nation -- according to the state.
Automotive leaders are among those driving the conversations this week. Bill Ford, Jr. delivered one of the keynote talks and Our Next Energy CEO Mujeeb Ijaz joined Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to announce the state’s “Make It In Michigan” economic development plan on Wednesday.
