The Treasury also said that she will host a roundtable discussion alongside Cleveland-area manufacturers.
She plans to highlight investments such as Intel Corp (NASDAQ:) The planned semiconductor manufacturing plant. An initial $20 billion investment could grow to $100 Billion to make it the largest chip facility in the world.
