I-CAL - Day 6 - Taiwan

The I-CAL team started off by going to the PETRONAS Twin Towers today, the fourth tallest building in the world. These towers are regarded as a symbol of Malaysia and its growing infrastructure. Many people may recognize these towers from the Sean Connery film “Entrapment.” We had the opportunity to go up to the 41st floor and tour the sky bridge that connects the two towers. PETRONAS is the largest petroleum company in Malaysia with business interests in over 35 countries.

We thanked our great United States Grain Council representative, Adel, for all the time he spent with us and making our time in Malaysia truly unforgettable. We also expressed our appreciation to our exquisite tour guide Joseph, whose local knowledge of Malaysia added to our cultural experiences.

After good byes we departed for Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Five hours later and some turbulence we arrived in Taipei to 71 degrees Fahrenheit (26 degrees Celsius) with a gentle rain. Our 45 minute bus ride brought us to the Howard Plaza Hotel, where we will be staying for the remainder of the trip. Tomorrow we are looking forward to learning about the U.S. Grain Council’s efforts in Taiwan and meeting with the Council of Agriculture.
