President Tsai Ing-wen says she hopes there can be more exchanges in clean energy technology between Taiwan and the US state of Wyoming to enhance sustainable development. Tsai was speaking on Thursday while meeting the governor of the state, Matt Mead.
Mead was in Taipei to sign an agreement with Taiwan to recognize each other’s driver’s licenses. The agreement will make it easier for legal residents of both sides to seek employment and schooling in each other’s territory.
Tsai said that Taiwan is Wyoming’s sixth-largest export market in Asia and 16th-largest trading partner in the world. Tsai said she hopes that both sides can strengthen cooperation especially in clean energy technology.
Tsai said, “Wyoming is actively developing clean energy technology, including wind power and clean coal. It is working hard on reaching a balance between energy development, environmental protection and economic growth. This is also the goal of Taiwan’s energy policy. We look forward to strengthening exchanges in this regard and to work towards sustainable development together.”
Governor Mead said Taiwan is an important partner for Wyoming and that he backs Taiwan’s participation in international organizations related to public safety, health and trade.
