Governor Matt Mead has completed a successful trade mission to Taiwan, where he opened the Wyoming – Asia Pacific Trade Office.

According to information provided by Governor Mead’s office, the goal is to establish and grow trade between Wyoming and Taiwan in agriculture, manufactured goods, minerals and tourism. Mead was joined by a number of Wyoming legislators, agriculture producers and state leaders. The process of establishing the office and naming a trade representative was outlined during the 2018 Legislative session.

The Wyoming delegation’s activities included dinner at one of Taiwan’s top restaurants, which served Wyoming beef. The export of Wyoming beef to Taiwan is one of the goals of the trade effort. Mead said that this was his third trip to Taiwan, and that he’s learned that people in Taiwan and the Asian Pacific region in general, love Wyoming. The Governor said that they like the products that come from our state and admire Wyoming’s culture. He added that opening a trade office will provide Wyoming companies many opportunities to grow in international markets starting with Taiwan and expanding into other Asian countries.
