Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA - The Rev. Jesse Jackson will visit Chattanooga today for an update on the Volkswagen project and to check out a minority trade show.

In his third trip to Chattanooga in a year and his second in a month, Mr. Jackson contacted the German automaker for a progress report on the assembly plant under construction in the city, said Guenther Scherelis, VW's general manager of communication here.

"We took the opportunity to invite him to the trade show," he said.

About 30 minority companies have been invited to meet with VW suppliers at the show inside the Chattanooga Convention Center, Mr. Scherelis said.
