Hirono Statement on Taiwan Visa Waiver


Location: Unknown

Today, Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Mazie Hirono released the following statement regarding Taiwan qualifying for "visa waiver" status:

"I applaud the Obama Administration for the approval of Taiwan's entry in to the U.S. Visa Waiver Program.

"Every time we make common sense changes to the visa waiver program, the additional visitors strengthen our state's #1 industry, tourism, and put money in the pockets of Hawaii's small businesses, which creates local jobs.

"I will continue to push my bipartisan VISIT USA bill, which would strengthen Hawaii's economy by working to cut red tape and ensuring that Congress provides the resources needed to support this vital industry."
