Lansing, MI - Following the successful Turkey-Michigan Forum, the City of Lansing and the Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP) signed several "historic" Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with Turkish officials.
"As far as I can tell, this is the first time our region has signed a formal agreement with another country," said Bob Trezise, president & CEO of LEAP. "This is unusual. This is historic."
Agreements were signed between the Turkish Association of Automotive Parts & Components Manufacturers (TAYSAD); Uludag Exporter's Association (OIB); Prima Civitas Foundation; LEAP; Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC); Automation Alley; and the city of Lansing, specifically with MOU's being signed with the Turkish Association of Automotive Parts & Components Manufacturers (TAYSAD) and Uludag Exporter's Association (OIB).
Trezise said the Turkish economy is one of the fastest-growing on the planet, and expressed hope that the agreements with the automotive manufacturer and exporter's association, in particular, would facilitate job creation.
