Nebraska Planning Cuba Trade Trip
LINCOLN, Neb. — A Nebraska delegation this fall will be making another
trade trip to Cuba.
Governor Dave Heineman said he's going to lead the agriculture-based
group to the island nation in November.
This would be Heineman's fourth trade trip to Cuba.
The governor also says he is thinking about trade trips to Canada, South
America, Mexico and Europe.
Since 2005, Cuba has bought 60 million dollars in Nebraska commodities,
including dry edible beans, corn, wheat, turkey, pork, beef, soybeans
and other soy products.
Last week, members of a trade delegation to Asia signed agreements with
Taiwan worth at least $375 million for Nebraska agricultural products
over the next two years.
