BATON ROUGE- At the start of his Asian business development trip, Gov. Bobby Jindal has met with the president of Taiwan and executives from Formosa Plastics Corporation.

Jindal and President Ma Ying-jeou talked about shared economic interests between Louisiana and Taiwan, which imports agricultural, energy and chemical products from the state.

Formosa has a plant in Baton Rouge.

Jindal's office said the governor and leaders of the company talked about possible growth in Louisiana.

Jindal left Saturday for the week-long trip, which also will take him to Japan and South Korea.

It's the governor's first overseas economic development mission in office.
