Today, Governor Pete Ricketts announced he will lead a trade mission, November 9-15, 2016 to meet with investors and host events in Xi’an, Shanghai, and Hong Kong to strengthen Nebraska’s relationships with the state’s fourth largest trading partner. The Governor will be joined by Director of Economic Development (DED) Courtney Dentlinger and Nebraska Director of Agriculture (NDA) Greg Ibach among others on the trade mission.
“China’s growing economy offers nearly boundless opportunities for Nebraska ag producers and manufacturers,” said Governor Ricketts. “This trade mission will help Nebraska businesses build on our existing relationships and strengthen our relationship with our fourth largest trading partner. Nebraska businesses who do business in China or that are hoping to enter this market should contact DED or NDA to express their interest in joining the trade mission.”
The Governor also mentioned that Nebraska business representatives who join the trade mission will get the opportunity to meet with business, ag business, chamber of commerce, government, and academic officials.
