LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts is set to travel to Japan and Vietnam as part of an international trade mission.
The governor’s office announced Wednesday that Ricketts will visit the countries in September along with state economic development officials.
Ricketts says Vietnam represents a tremendous opportunity to increase Nebraska’s agricultural exports, and Japan is one of the state’s longest and most critical international partners.
The trip is scheduled from Sept. 3-10 and will include stops in Hanoi and Tokyo.
The delegation is expected to meet with Vietnamese government officials responsible for trade decisions, agricultural officials and industry leaders currently using Nebraska products.
Ricketts has led trade missions to China, Japan, Mexico and several countries in Europe.
