Senator Roland Pederson Represents Oklahoma on Taiwanese Trade Mission

Tue, 19 Nov 2019 18:22:23 CST

Senator Roland Pederson Represents Oklahoma on Taiwanese Trade Mission Sen. Roland Pederson, R-Burlington, recently represented Oklahoma on a global scale during an agricultural trade mission to promote the state’s interests in Taiwan Nov. 11-17.

Initiated by the Taiwanese Agriculture Trade Mission, Sen. Pederson joined Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell and other legislative leaders to form the Southern United States Legislature Leaders Delegation and discuss opportunities for trade and investment in both Oklahoma and the southern U.S. with Taiwanese officials.

“I enjoyed advocating for Oklahoma’s global agricultural interests with our Taiwanese friends during our recent trade mission,” Pederson said. “Oklahoma is in a strong position to trade and invest with other countries who demand a high-quality agricultural product, and we are excited for the opportunity to grow a partnership with the people of Taiwan for years to come.”

Sen. Pederson was selected as a delegate for the trip due to his expertise in Oklahoma’s agricultural economy, Pinnell said. He provided an important voice in sharing the opportunities Taiwan has with Oklahoma.

“It was an honor to lead a delegation of legislative leaders from Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas to Taiwan last week,” Pinnell said. “It was a great opportunity to strengthen the bonds between our states and Taiwan. On the trip, we emphasized the opportunities for trade between Oklahoma and Taiwan, particularly with Oklahoma wheat and beef.”
