Governor Heineman is unveiling plans for what he calls Nebraska’s first reverse trade mission. About 125 visitors will be in the Husker State over the next month, from nations including: Brazil, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea.
The Governor says he’s arranging the junkets in an effort to spark trade. Heineman figures if the potential international customers see first-hand what Nebraska has to offer, they’ll be more likely to buy.
Tours are planned in several areas and industries, including agriculture, renewable energy, distribution and logistics, research and I-T. Among the stops, a Cargill ethanol plant, Union Pacific, the University of Nebraska Medical Center and the Lincoln Kawasaki plant.
