Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed a memorandum with Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne to promote the region's automotive industry.

They were near Traverse City on Wednesday at the Center for Automotive Research Management Briefing Seminars. The state and province are creating a working group to focus on autonomous vehicles, lightweight materials, alternative fuels and other best practices.

Snyder says it's about Michigan and Ontario "being good neighbors and good partners." Wynne says she wants to boost opportunities on both sides of the border.

The state says trade between Ontario and Michigan was worth $74 billion in 2015. Ontario and Michigan account for 26 percent of vehicle production in the region.
