Business and government leaders are gathering in Detroit for what's being called the nation's first conference on the future of manufacturing, technology, energy and the environment.

Organizers say this week's meeting would be similar to the World Economic Forum held in Switzerland. A goal would be drafting a national plan to keep the U.S. competitive in the face of industrial and economic upheavals.

Participants will include dozens of top executives from corporations such as Microsoft Corp., Delta Air Lines, ConocoPhillips, Citigroup, General Motors and Ford.
