Nebraska’s ag director heading to China

Nebraska Agriculture Director Greg Ibach will travel to China later this week to represent the state at a workshop designed to spark mutual U.S. – China investment in agriculture and bioenergy.

Ibach is slated to be a presenter at the workshop, discussing the opportunity for Chinese companies to add value to Nebraska-grown commodities within the state’s borders.

“I will continue to emphasize that while Nebraska wants to maintain our strong relationship exporting goods to China, we also think that there’s opportunity for them to invest in processing those raw commodities right here in Nebraska,” Ibach says.

Participants in the workshop will include representatives of Chinese and international companies and investment banks, national and state agricultural leaders, and agribusiness consultants.
