Governor Mead Heading to Asia This Month
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead will be traveling to Asia in an effort to expand tourism and economic opportunities for Wyoming. Mead will visit Taiwan and South Korea from Oct. 9-20. The governor's office says both countries are likely to expand imports of American coal, uranium, natural gas and agricultural products. Mead is scheduled to speak at the World Energy Congress in South Korea and meet with South Korean utilities. Tourism is another opportunity because the United States has changed its policy for Taiwanese tourists to allow them to visit America without a visa. Mead is scheduled to attend the Taipei International Travel Fair, Taiwan's largest travel industry trade show.
