From Jan. 21 to Jan. 25, 2019, the State of Wyoming-Asia Pacific Trade Office Director, Chester Chu, took a whirlwind tour of Wyoming. He visited a ranch in Lingle, addressed the state Legislature, met the University of Wyoming President Laurie Nichols, provided market information and export training to the Wyoming Business Council staff and economic development professionals from around the state, toured Pine Bluffs Distilling, and much more.
The state opened the Wyoming-Asia Pacific Trade Office in Taipei, Taiwan, and hired Chu in the fall of 2018 after the Legislature allocated money from the state’s general fund to encourage the export of products and services from Wyoming to national and international markets. This was Chu’s first visit to Wyoming. He will make another trip in 2019.
Wyoming Business Council staff got a chance to ask Chu about his early successes and his plans for the future of international trade.
