HANOI, VIETNAM – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts met with Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc of Vietnam to promote Nebraska’s ag products and investment opportunities.  During the meeting, Governor Ricketts and the Nebraska trade delegation discussed expanding trade in agriculture and opportunities for partnerships in higher education with the Prime Minster of Vietnam. 


From 2017-18, Nebraska’s beef exports to Vietnam grew 127%.  In 2017, Vietnam opened its market to American shipments of dried distillers’ grains.


The day’s agenda included meetings with the Ministry of Investment and Planning, the National University of Agriculture, and the Mayor of Hanoi.  The day concluded with a reception for University of Nebraska alumni.  This event, and similar ones on other trade missions, strengthen the state’s network of Nebraskans abroad who help promote the Good Life around the globe.
