Secretary Of State Mark Martin Promotes Arkansas Trade In Taiwan

(LITTLE ROCK, ARK.) – Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council are co-hosting the 7th annual US Business Day in Taipei, and have invited Secretary of State Mark Martin to represent Arkansas at the event. He will first travel to Houston on Friday for a meeting with the Taipei Economic & Cultural Office, and then on to Taiwan for the event.

The United States is Taiwan’s 2nd largest trading partner, and they are America’s 11th largest. US Business Day was created to support and grow bilateral business cooperation between both partners. Arkansas companies exported over $68 million dollars worth of commodities to Taiwan last year.

Secretary Martin will make a presentation on Arkansas trade opportunities to an assembled group of Taiwanese business leaders as a keynote speaker. He will also have meetings at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Taiwan-US Industrial Cooperation Promotion Office, the Bureau of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Economic Affairs and with business leadership of potential trade and investment partners for Arkansas.

Secretary Martin has twice received delegations from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Houston, led by Director General Peter Chen, seeking to strengthen the trade relationship between Arkansas and Taiwan.  In the course of these visits, Secretary Martin was asked to lead the Arkansas delegation to U.S. Business Day.
