Nebraska State Ag Director Going To Taiwan On Trade Mission

Nebraska officials will travel to Taiwan and Japan for a trade mission September 2 through the 13th.  State Ag Director Greg Ibach will be on the Taiwan leg of the mission. He says both countries are good markets for Nebraska’s ag products as is the whole far east region.

Ibach says while Taiwan lifted feed additive restrictions on U.S. beef, those on pork remain. He’s hoping they’ll be able to talk about that on their trip and try to convince them to lift that barrier as well.

Taiwan has been a good customer of Nebraska’s corn, soybeans and wheat and Ibach is hoping to see that continue.
