Indiana House Democratic Leader Scott Pelath, of Michigan City, was one of a dozen lawmakers from across the Midwest who recently spent a week in Taiwan. Pelath says he was invited by the island nation to observe its geopolitical and economic importance to the US, as nations like Taiwan are lucrative customers for Indiana's agricultural products. During his trip, which took place from July 2nd through the 8th, Pelath says he learned a great deal and that it was a honor to represent Indiana abroad, but his only regret was missing Michigan City's big parade for the first time in years.
As of 2011, Taiwan ranked 20th in the world in gross domestic product.
