International Trade Grows Nebraska

Trade has been a great way to grow Nebraska for many years.  With over 95 percent of the world’s population living outside the United States, we have billions of potential customers for the food we grow and the things we make here in Nebraska.  Over the past few years, I have led international trade missions to Japan twice, China twice, the European Union, and Canada.  International trade representatives from state agencies have led additional missions in recent years including visits to Bulgaria, Germany, Israel, South Korea, and Vietnam among many others.  To expand opportunities internationally, my administration has worked to grow exports, attract foreign investment in Nebraska, and expand partnerships.
