(LANSING) – State Representative Andrew Fink has expressed his disapproval of efforts to bring a Chinese Communist Party linked company to Michigan.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued a statement this week from Davos, Switzerland, the site of the World Economic Forum, declaring her support for wooing a new battery manufacturing plant with ties to Contemporary Amperex Technology, a company based in China. Earlier in the week, Governor Glenn Youngkin of Virginia withdrew his state from pursuit of the project, given its ties to China.
Fink, a Republican from Adams Township, says Youngkin has the right idea, in that involving the Chinese Communist Party in the production of American electric vehicles is a bad move that stands to threaten U.S. economic stability and security. Fink says Michigan should follow Virginia lead and reject this investment, sending the message that we do not support the CCP’s corrupt trade practices and showing commitment to protecting Michigan and the State and national economy along with the personal privacy of Michiganders.
Fink says he will strongly oppose any effort to use State taxpayer dollars to bring the China-affiliated project to Michigan.
