Ohio Gov. John Kasich plans to meet Tuesday with the Detroit Three automakers to tout the business friendly efforts his administration has made since he took office in January.
Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols says the first-term governor is meeting with General Motors, Ford and Chrysler in Detroit to talk about their investments in the state and to ensure they remain a presence.
Job losses in the auto industry and manufacturing over the past few years have contributed to Ohio's economic woes.
Kasich met with the automakers during his first week on the job and asked them how the state could become more competitive.
Nichols says Kasich plans to update the automakers on his progress and on the state's improved outlook from the Standard & Poor's Ratings Services.
