Foxconn's Gou heads to US to salvage Wisconsin tax breaks

Negotiating touch in spotlight amid Taiwan presidential candidate's bid

TAIPEI -- Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou appears headed for the U.S., looking to discuss the company's $10 billion LCD plant planned in Wisconsin and burnish his dealmaking credentials for Taiwanese voters.

Gou, who recently announced a bid for Taiwan's presidency, told journalists Tuesday night in Taipei that he was to board a plane shortly for an overseas trip. He did not reveal other details, but a source familiar with the matter says Gou will visit Wisconsin as soon as early May. The news follows earlier media reports of Gou's plans to travel to Washington for a White House meeting.
