Wyoming to open trade with Taiwan
Monday, November 12, 2018
CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Business Council, with financial assistance from the state, is laying groundwork for new international trading with Taiwan and, eventually, the larger Asian Pacific Rim.
The Wyoming Legislature allotted $400,000 from the state’s general fund to the Business Council this year to encourage the export of products and services from the state to national and international markets.
Recently, the council entered into a 22-month contract with Taiwanese trade representative Chester Chu, who will work with buyers in Taiwan to establish relationships with Wyoming businesses. He also is responsible for educating businesses and building market profiles.
Chu, a 20-year veteran of operations and commercial leadership in various multinational industries, was ultimately chosen for the position due to his working knowledge of Wyoming’s limited trade opportunities, according to WBC business development director Ron Gullberg.
