New role of government in the U.S. auto industry

January 17, 2010

UMTRI's Automotive Analysis Division continues its Focus on the Future conference series on Wednesday, February 17, with a look at the new role of government in the U.S. automotive industry.

Not since World War II has the interdependence between the auto industry and government been so profound. Dramatic changes have taken place in the relationship between the two entities in the wake of high profile company bankruptcies and plummeting auto sales.

The U.S. government is now part owner of two of the largest U.S. auto companies and has plans to move the country--and the industry--toward a more sustainable future.

This daylong conference offers the opportunity to hear from both auto industry and government representatives as they examine changes in the traditional role of government and analyze what these changes mean for the industry.

The conference will take place on February 17 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the U-M Michigan League Ballroom (second floor).
