Expanding Nebraska export opportunities

Nebraska farmers and businesses are at the forefront of the noble pursuit of feeding the world. The ever growing global population only increases Nebraska’s export potential. With that in mind, last week I led a delegation from Nebraska on a trade mission to China where we saw firsthand the global opportunities for Nebraska products, services and research. The delegation included Nebraska ag, business, and community leaders committed to developing or expanding trade and investment opportunities in China. About 95 percent of the world’s consumers lie outside of our borders and we need to be proactive to grow trade that will create jobs at home.

China is Nebraska’s fourth largest trading partner and the fastest growing. Department of Economic Development Director Courtney Dentlinger and Director of Agriculture Greg Ibach took the lead planning the trip to China. China’s growing economy and middle class means an increasing demand for the high quality food and products for which Nebraska is known.
