Governor Rick Snyder says he's launching an initiative to encourage immigration as a way of fostering Detroit's economic development.


Snyder's office says the governor will join Mayor Mike Duggan at a Thursday morning news conference. It says City Council members and business and community leaders also will participate.


The 10 a.m. event is at the offices of the IDEAL Group, a family owned manufacturing and construction company.


Snyder has promoted immigrant entrepreneurs as a resource for Detroit's economic development. He said in last Thursday's State of the State address that he wants to make Michigan more immigrant-friendly and more attractive for foreign investment.


Snyder has applied for Michigan to join Vermont as states that run a regional center for the EB-5 visa program targeting immigrant entrepreneurs.
