Alan Yeung, director of U.S. strategic initiatives for Foxconn, will introduce his company to the New North region and present on its approach to Wisconsin. An overview of a “Foxconn Day” for potential supply chain partners that would take place in the Green Bay area early in 2018 also will be provided.
