Business Council requests proposals for Taiwan trade representative
Wednesday, June 20, 2018
The Wyoming Business Council is requesting proposals for a one-year renewable contract to represent the international trade interests of Wyoming businesses in Taiwan.
Hiring an international trade representative was one of several calls to action in Enrolled Act 37 approved by the Wyoming Legislature and signed by Gov. Matt Mead this spring. The Wyoming Business Council engaged with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs once the act passed and received initial approval for the state trade office.
“The Business Council is working quickly to increase Wyoming's international prosperity – particularly for our food and manufactured goods,” Business Council CEO Shawn Reese said.
The Business Council, the state’s economic development agency, seeks a trade representative to network with buyers and distributors in Taiwan and establish relationships between those entities and Wyoming businesses. The trade representative will also educate Wyoming businesses on exporting to Taiwan and build market profiles to find market demand Wyoming can fulfill.
