SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake County's mayor and several council members woke up in Taiwan this morning.

The county leaders are planning to spend the next several days trying to build relationship in the southeast Asian economic powerhouse. Officials say Mayor Peter Corroon and council members --- Jim Bradley and Marv Hendrickson --- left on the junket yesterday and plan to return to Utah Tuesday night.

While taxpayers are not paying for the trip, the mayor's spokesman say he's not sure whether the Taiwanese government or private donors are footing the bill.
