In early August Michigan and Ontario agreed to collaborate in promoting and coordinating their collective expertise in advanced vehicle development. A special area of concentration will be the connected car, says Ray Tanguay, auto advisor to the governments of Canada and Ontario.

Tanguay notes that Ontario has North America’s largest concentration of information technology talent outside Silicon Valley, with more than 20,000 IT companies and 260,000 IT specialists.

The Ontario-Michigan collaboration will retain local talent and help speed connectivity, which promises to improve road safety and reduce traffic congestion, Tanguay says.
