LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts met with Jiang Shuidong, a Deputy Director in the Foreign Affairs Office of Shaanxi Province.  Together, they discussed opportunities for person-to-person exchanges, culturally-focused exchanges, and Shaanxi province’s attendance at the US-China Governors Collaboration Summit, at which they had a productive meeting with Jennifer Zhang, Nebraska’s representative to China.

 

Nebraska and the Shaanxi Province are sister-states.  In 2016, Governor Ricketts led a trade mission to China where he met with Shaanxi Province officials to discuss Nebraska’s growing relationship with the province.  In 2017, Nebraska exported $1.4 billion in goods to China.
