Building Nebraska's brand internationally
Monday, December 24, 2018
Trade has been front of mind for Nebraskans and Americans across the country over the last couple of years. President Trump has put a new focus on getting the best trade deals for our country, and has succeeded in securing new agreements with Canada, Mexico, and South Korea. His administration is also holding bilateral trade talks with the European Union, Japan, and the United Kingdom.
For Nebraska, international markets have created major opportunities for our top industries, agriculture and manufacturing, for many years. With over 95 percent of the world’s population beyond America’s borders, there are endless opportunities to promote the quality products we are producing. From jobs at Hendrix Genetics in Grand Island, Kawasaki in Lincoln, and Novozymes in Blair to the beef we export to China and partnerships with higher education, Nebraska is building a strong global presence, which is helping to grow opportunities for farm families and working Nebraskans.
