Gov. Mead Promotes Tourism In Far East

Taiwan

Wyoming Governor Matt Mead says he had a very positive response to his efforts on behalf of Wyoming tourism during his trip to Taiwan last week.  During that trip, Mead participated in the opening ceremony of the US Pavilion at the Taipei International Travel Fair where he says he was asked to cut the ribbon on opening day.  Mead says his timing for being there with the visa waiver program having just taken effect.  He says about a quarter-million people attended the fair after the ribbon-cutting.  Mead says he gave a speech about Wyoming at the ribbon cutting and at a luncheon that followed.  Then, says Mead, “We read in the paper the next day (as best we could) that it was well received.  They gave Wyoming a big section in the paper.”  Mead says he attended in his cowboy hat and boots which seemed to – in his words: “enthuse the crowd quite a little bit.” Mead says there were multiple states represented at the fair including Idaho, Nevada, Hawaii, and Guam, but he was the highest ranking state official in attendance.  He says since the visa waiver rules took effect, there has been a 24% increase in tourism from Taiwan to the US, and he says where ever he went, he found the people very familiar with the tourism opportunities Wyoming has to offer; most notably Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Devils Tower.  He says he believes his presence there made a very positive impression on the tourism interests.
