General Motors plans to make a “significant manufacturing” announcement in Flint today.

General Motors officials have declined to say what they plan to announce at the Flint Assembly plant.

But they have confirmed that Governor Rick Snyder and GM North America President Mark Reuss will be there.

The announcement in Flint coincides with an appearance by outgoing GM CEO Dan Akerson at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., where he’s scheduled to speak on the automaker’s plans for future investment in the U.S.

Nearly three years ago, GM announced plans to add hundreds of jobs and spend hundreds of millions of dollars on the Flint Assembly Plant.

Recently, the city of Flint granted GM a huge tax abatement for a paint shop at the assembly plant.
