The sound of “Country Roads” played half a world away in Taiwan, where state leaders and lawmakers cut the ribbon this week on West Virginia’s Taiwan Office.
West Virginia Economic Development Sec. Mitch Carmichael spoke with WSAZ NewsChannel 3 from Taiwan on Friday.
“Without an office in Taiwan, we miss opportunities to provide jobs and growth for our citizens in West Virginia,” he said. “With this office, at a very low cost, we can attract more jobs, more opportunity and employ West Virginians.”
