ENGLER JOINS EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF FIRST-EVER U.S. EXPORT EVENT

 ENGLER JOINS EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF FIRST-EVER U.S. EXPORT EVENT
 DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Michigan Gov. John Engler has joined the "Made In America For The World" Exposition and Conference Executive Committee.
 "Made In America For The World" is a first-time exposition and conference to showcase world-class products made in America and to serve as a catalyst for increasing U.S. exports. The event runs Sept. 30- Oct. 2 in Detroit's Cobo Center.
 "State government has an important part to play in creating a climate where both manufacturing and U.S. exporting prosper," said Engler. "This event is an opportunity to continue bringing together our state departments and the private sector to help, rather than hinder, successful enterprises.
 "Manufacturing in Michigan is very strong and it is here to stay," said Engler. "Because our state is well positioned to compete, we must build worldwide confidence in our manufacturing base and continue to forge stronger international links for exporting."
 Other Executive Committee members are: Heinz C. Prechter, chairman of President Bush's export council and ASC Incorporated; Edward H. McNamara, Wayne County Executive, Detroit; Keith E. Crain, vice chairman of Crain Communications Inc.; and James J. Duderstadt, Ph.D., president of the University of Michigan.
 In addition, the event is endorsed by a growing list of industry, labor, government and academic leaders including the entire delegation of Michigan Congressional representatives and senators; the U.S. Department of Commerce; the Michigan District Export Council (MDEC); the Michigan AFL-CIO; the U.S. ASEAN Council; and the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), to name just a few.
 This inaugural event will focus on export manufacturers and service providers from the Great Lakes Region and is intended to serve as a forerunner to a world-class "U.S. Trade Fair."
 "Economists tell us that for every $1 billion of exports, 20,000 jobs are created," said Engler. "Therefore, I see stronger trade links between the U.S. and foreign markets as essential. It is a goal that exhibitors and attendees at 'Made In America For The World' can help advance."
 The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), a Dearborn-based professional society, will produce and manage the show. For information on exhibiting or attending the event, call SME at 1-800-733-4SME.
