Reverse trade trip brings global visitors to NE

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.
