Gov. Tim Walz met Thursday with representatives of about a dozen Japan-based companies considering opening offices or facilities in Minnesota.
Japan is the third-largest foreign investor in the state with more than 40 Japanese-owned companies already operating businesses at nearly 100 locations in Minnesota, state officials said Thursday.
The visiting companies were part of delegation organized by the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) that works to promote Japanese investment globally.
