DENVER, United States, March 2 (Xinhua) -- News of America's new interior secretary being confirmed Wednesday in the nation's capital echoed loudly some 3,200 km away in the Rocky Mountains.

Ryan Zinke's nomination to lead the Interior Department was confirmed by the Senate by a 68 to 31 vote. Zinke, 55, a Republican congressman, will take over a department that is responsible for the management and conservation of the country's surface land, including national parks and wildlife refuges across the west.

Reaction was particularly quick from the Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) which represents America's 646-billion-dollar outdoor recreation world.

During his confirmation hearings, Zinke expressed opposition to the transfer or sale of public lands.

"We support the new interior secretary and his pledge to protect our public lands," Amy Roberts, who runs the OIA, told Xinhua.

But while the OIA, which represents 6.1 million workers, thousands of supporting businesses, and an audience of 160 million Americans who enjoy outdoor recreation, gave President Donald Trump's interior pick the green light, they singled out Utah as an enemy to public lands.

Last month, the OIA announced to end the lucrative Outdoor Retailer show in Utah over its latest disagreement with state leaders about their stance on public lands. The trade show once had brought millions of dollars and thousands of outdoors enthusiasts to Utah over the past 20 years.

"We see public lands as the infrastructure of the entire industry," Roberts said. "That's why we can support the new secretary, but not Utah," she added.

Roberts and her 1,200 member organizations, including billion-dollar giants Patagonia and North Face, on Tuesday published a request to move the association's trade show out of Utah forever.

Republican Utah Governor Gary Herbert and Utah officials reportedly were pushing for state control of public lands currently owned by the federal government, among other actions.

Two weeks ago, Herbert refused to stop state resolutions to reverse two ex-President Barack Obama's historic designations for spectacular wilderness areas, Bear Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments.

"Never really in the history of our country has a state sought to rescind a national monument, let alone two," said Patagonia CEO Rose Marcario.

"We really can't stand by" Utah's efforts, Marcario said. "As an industry, we're all about defending public lands."

Roberts predicted that other national outdoor and sports groups would also pull events from Utah, adding one prominent bicycle group was canceling future races there.

The OIA chief executive hoped that local Utah businesses would band together to push state officials to protect more public land.

CHICAGO Josh Malone Bengals Jersey , Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- LG Electronics Inc. plans to open a factory in Hazel Park, the suburbs of Detroit, to produce EV components.

The 250,000-square-foot facility is expected to start production in 2018, local media reported.

This facility will bring the state of Michigan at least 292 new jobs, including factory workers in Hazel Park and engineers at the expanded LG R&D Center in Troy, Michigan.

Besides an investment of 25 million dollars from LG, the Michigan Business Development Program will grant 2.9 million dollars to the project in the next four years. LG will also receive hiring and training assistance from the U.S. state.

"When leading global companies like LG invest in Michigan and create hundreds of good, high-paying jobs here, it speaks volumes about the strong business and mobility climate in the state today," state of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder said in a statement released Tuesday. "LG's great technological advancements and our outstanding workforce will help pave the way for the vehicles of the future right here in Michigan."

"Vehicle components represent the fastest-growing business of global technology leader LG Electronics," local media quoted LG officials as saying. LG's 2017 first-half global revenues for vehicle components reached more than 1.5 billion dollars, a 43 percent increase from the same period last year, thanks in large part to the successful collaboration with General Motors on the popular Chevrolet Bolt EV.
