I am happy to share that Madison has been selected as a feature site for the Third Americas Competitiveness Exchange (ACE) tour.  The ACE tour highlights advanced technology centers, innovation hubs, public private partnerships, exports, and foreign direct investments in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Illinois.

On April 21st and 22nd Madison will welcome a delegation of nearly 50 foreign trade and innovation  ministers, private sector leaders, mayors, chancellors, university presidents, and other leaders from all over the world, including the U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development, Jay Williams.

Members of the delegation will be meeting with local business and government leaders and touring local companies.

Congratulations to our Madison innovators on this impressive achievement!  I look forward to meeting the delegation!
