Adams meets with Taiwanese Director-General

Frankfort, KY - At the invitation of the Taiwanese government, Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams met virtually with Director-General Elliot Yi-lung Wang of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office based in Atlanta.

"I am most honored to have met Director-General Wang, Taiwan's top diplomat for the southeastern U.S.," said Adams. "From the early days of my administration, I've corresponded amicably with Taiwanese officials, and in my term I hope to build on Kentucky's relationship with our Taiwanese friends."

Wang graciously invited Adams to visit Taiwan once conditions permit. "I've never been to Asia," noted Adams, "and I hope my first trip to Asia is to Taiwan."

The two leaders discussed how to strengthen the bonds between Taiwan and Kentucky. Wang expressed a desire for expanded Taiwanese investments in Kentucky. As the state's chief business official, Adams advised he would take what steps he could to assist in bringing more jobs to the Commonwealth. Adams noted that he proudly joined several of his Secretary of State colleagues from around the country recently to issue a joint statement in support of greater bilateral trade and investment between the U.S. and Taiwan.
