Governor Mead To Visit Southeast Asia

October 3, 2013 Greater Yellowstone, State of Wyoming No Comments
Governor Matt Mead

Governor Matt Mead is traveling to Asia next week to seek to expand tourism and economic opportunities for Wyoming. Mead says he will specifically visit Taiwan and South Korea which have strong relationships with the United States and have strong potential for Wyoming’s leading industries. Among the expansion of trade will be Wyoming coal, uranium, natural gas and agricultural products.  However, he says due to changes in Taiwanese law tourism is also likely to increase.  Mead explains that part of the reason for the increased interest in tourism is that country’s changes in visa laws where the citizens no longer need visas to visit the United States.  Mead says, “The timing is great for us to go in there; and I think the last time a Wyoming governor visited was about 25 years ago.” Mead is also to attend the Taipei International Travel Fair, where the Wyoming Board of Tourism will be representing Wyoming.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
