Governor Dave Heineman joined with leaders from around the world to sign five memorandums of understandings that could lead to new jobs for Nebraskans.
“They’re impressed with Nebraska, They’re impressed with the business climate here, and they’re impressed with Nebraskans as individuals – we’re hard working”.
One of the Business leaders commented that Nebraska has cheap labor, cheap land, and cheap electricity.
More than 130 business leaders are in the state as part of a reverse trade mission.
“They got to see up close..the Union Pacific, an ethanol plant, The University of Nebraska and their many research facilities, that’s how you begin to develop the relationship. This was not a mission that I was expecting today that we would be signing on the dotted line…new plants opening or something like that. That would be premature.”
The M-O-U’s are meant to encourage the leaders to do business in Nebraska if they choose to do business in the United states.
