Seven Hawaii state senators are traveling to Taiwan to visit government agencies and businesses.

The trip starts Tuesday, and it's sponsored by the Taiwanese government to enhance mutual understanding and cooperation.

A statement from the Hawaii Senate says the trip comes at no cost to state taxpayers.

The senators will visit Taiwan's Tourism Bureau, Department of Rapid Transit Systems, Council of Indigenous Peoples and the Bureau of Energy, electric car manufacturer Luxgen Motor Co. and alternative energy company iWind Energy Co.

The delegation to Taiwan includes Sens. Kalani English, Will Espero, Mike Gabbard, Michelle Kidani, Clarence Nishihara, Pohai Ryan and Glenn Wakai.

The delegation returns to Hawaii on Monday.
