US judge allows Chinese company Gotion to build plant in Michigan

A Michigan town has lost its battle with a Chinese battery maker linked to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Judge allows Gotion to build factory.

Chinese battery maker Gotion wins. A US district judge has ruled that the company can start building a factory for the production of batteries in the town of Green Charter in the state of Michigan.

Investments in it will amount to two billion dollars. More than two thousand jobs will be created. But local residents oppose it, because they are concerned about the company's ties to the communist regime of the People's Republic of China.

A branch of the Communist Party operates in the Chinese parent company Gotion. It employs more than 900 members of the CPC, including the general director. And this parent company has full control over Gotion. The information was first revealed by the Daily Caller news publication.

Michigan residents expressed their concerns as early as last year.

The Gotion plant is planned to be built only 160 kilometers from the Grayling base – the largest training center of the US National Guard.

Gotion received the green light for construction from the municipality last August. However, the composition of the administration has changed. The newly elected representatives opposed Gotion, abandoning the deal. However, the Chinese company sued. As a result, the judge ruled that the town must honor the preliminary agreement while the case is pending.
