State of Wyoming Archives: on Free Trade


Matt Mead: Our state is not an island; compete in global market

International trade opportunities are a priority. Our state is not an island. It's not just us. We compete in a global market and Wyoming companies are developing and making products for here and around the world. We need to help those companies get their products out there everywhere.

Last year I visited Canada, South Korea and Taiwan to promote trade. The Tourism Office was an important part of the trip to Asia, and Wyoming companies participated in the Canada trip.

Outreach efforts have begun, and they certainly should not end. We must continue to work for increased export opportunities for Wyoming businesses and products. The Joint Appropriations Committee added $350,000 for developing international trade. I support this.
