FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin is promoting the state’s automotive industry at the North American International Auto Show in Michigan.

Bevin’s office says the governor is traveling to Detroit on Tuesday to speak with auto industry leaders at the event. It’s Bevin’s first official trip outside the state as governor since taking office. Bevin says the show is an opportunity to promote Kentucky to some of the auto industry’s most influential leaders.

The event is considered by industry experts to be the largest and most prestigious automotive showcase. The event features more than 750 vehicles and interactive displays by suppliers.

Kentucky ranks near the top nationally in auto production. Ford has two production plants in Louisville, Toyota has a production facility at Georgetown and General Motors makes Corvettes at Bowling Green.
