Walker said if Foxconn doesn't fulfill their promise to invest $10 billion or create 13,000 jobs, the company won't be eligible for the $3 billion in incentives the state has planned for the company to build a 20 million-square foot campus to create liquid display panels.

"If I didn't get elected, he definitely would not be spending $10 billion", Trump said.

In a White House speech, Trump said the financial commitment by Foxconn CEO Terry Gou was a direct result of his electoral win.

The deal is a political victory for Governor Walker, who proposed the tax incentives in order to beat six other states, Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Pennsylvania, and NY, to land Foxconn. About half is for capital costs and almost half for workforce development.

"Obviously it is a big economic incentive, but it's also a huge plant", Barca says.

But Foxconn has had a mixed record following up on promises to create new jobs in the United States. As a career-focused educational partner, Herzing will meet Foxconn's needs, ranging from positions on the associate or diploma level that require custom training to management jobs that necessitate bachelor's and master's degrees in project management, technology management, HR and accounting.

Walker said the plant was the largest economic development project in the state's history.

The agreement came one day after Gou and U.S. President Donald Trump jointly announced the "Flying Eagle" project at the White House.

U.S. president Donald Trump is celebrating Foxconn's decision to build a new plant in Wisconsin as a personal win.

In 2013, the company announced plans to build a $30 million plant that would employ 500 workers in central Pennsylvania. Some of those announcements sought to take credit for previously announced investments. On a scale of 1 (unimportant) to 5 (extremely important), they gave automation and other technological advances a 3.2.

"Really, it's not just about a business, it's about school aged children in STEM programs going to post-secondary, going to work here and growing to work that IT industry", Kukkhan said. It would mark a substantial gain for a state that now has 472,000 manufacturing jobs and is still recovering from factory layoffs - including the closure of a General Motors plant in Ryan's hometown - that hit after the 2008 financial crisis.

"I think there's going to be residual or indirect impact from that part of the state but they are going to need support from businesses all across the state and the region", Kukkhan said.

Trump told the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday that Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook has committed to build three big manufacturing plants in the United States. An Apple spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.

Inside the White House, discussions with Foxconn about opening a USA plant were led over several months by Jared Kushner, a senior adviser and the president's son-in-law, and Reed Cordish, an assistant to the president on technology initiatives.
