Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes will visit Taiwan on a mission that's being paid for the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office.

Grimes, one of six secretaries of state leaving for the trip on Wednesday, said she intends to use the visit to promote economic development in Kentucky. She said she also will focus on absentee voting procedures for Kentuckians living abroad.

The delegation is expected to visit several cities in Taiwan, one of Kentucky's chief trade partners, before they return late next week.

Numerous Kentucky companies — including Ashland Inc., Brown Forman, Lexmark and Sunspring Metal Corp. — have offices there.

Grimes office said in a statement that Kentucky exported some $288 million worth of goods to Taiwan in 2011.
