Nebraska officials have announced a trade trip to Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Farm equipment users see their products go around the world, especially as the federal government works on increasing the nation's exports.

Recently, officials in Nebraska announced they are going to do their own part to further the state's connection with Asian Markets through a trade mission to Hong Kong and Taiwan. The announcement was made by Governor Dave Heineman, who previously led a similar endeavor in the latter half of 2007.

"We have continued to foster our relationship with importers there and we hope to secure sales based on indications of ongoing interest in our agricultural goods," Heineman said.

The trip - which will occur from August 5 to 14 - will be led by state Agriculture Director Greg Ibach. He noted that the Asian market has represented a good customer for Nebraska's products.

The Obama administration has also advanced the goal of doubling U.S. exports in the next five years. Thus far, agriculture has led the way by increasing it portion of those goods by 19 percent during the first quarter of 2010.ADNFCR-2034-ID-19885451-ADNFCR
