Governor Pete Ricketts and his trade delegation have completed a successful, three-day trade mission to Mexico City. Members of the 25-person trade delegation represented Nebraska agriculture, agribusinesses, higher education, and economic development. During the trade mission, the delegation thanked Mexico for trade in the past, expressed hope for a new trade deal in the near future, and explored opportunities to expand exports of both agricultural and manufacturing products from the United States and Nebraska.
“Mexico is Nebraska’s second-largest agricultural export market, so it presents tremendous opportunities for producers and businesses in the state,” said Governor Ricketts. “This trade mission was focused on promoting our brand, identifying new business opportunities, and strengthening relationships with our existing customers. The mission gave us a big step up in expanding Nebraska’s brand in this important market as well as a great opportunity to say thank you to our neighbor and one of our best customers.”
