Governor Matt Mead met with Taiwanese officials Thursday in an effort to enhance Wyoming’s foreign trade. The meeting was in Cheyenne.
He says Taiwan is very interested in Wyoming Coal and Mead is hoping that they can reach other trade agreements as well.
"We want the opportunity to reach out to great trading partners and friends who can help us as we help them with these trade relationships. And so it’s a great way for us to continue to build our economy."
Last week, Wyoming Governor Matt Mead released his proposed budget and he will present that budget to the legislature’s Joint Appropriations Committee on Monday. The budget features some cuts and a couple of policy decisions. The Governor joins us now.
