Governor Mead To Visit Southeast Asia

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.
