Governor: Ohio must embrace future, change rust belt image

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Wednesday the state must change its rust belt image and embrace new technologies on all fronts.

While manufacturing will always be important in Ohio, the state must move away from the idea of building another factory that produces things people don't need anymore, Kasich said at an annual forum sponsored by The Associated Press.

"We also want to change the image of Ohio from the rust belt to the knowledge belt," Kasich said.
