HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie is traveling to Taiwan.
The governor was scheduled to depart Honolulu on Tuesday aboard Hawaiian Airlines' inaugural flight to Taipei.
The Governor's Office says his visit is in recognition of the 20th anniversary of Hawaii's sister-state relationship with Taiwan.
He is expected to visit with President Ma Ying-jeou and participate in an event promoting Hawaii products.
Lt. Gov. Shan Tsutsui will be acting governor until while Abercrombie is away.
