Nebraska Businesses, Ag Producers Invited to Participate in Trade Mission to Germany This Fall

Lincoln – Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts is encouraging agricultural producers and businesses across Nebraska to consider joining the Nov. 9-16 International Trade Mission to Germany.

Officials from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development and the Nebraska Department of Agriculture will accompany Ricketts and Nebraska businesses on the trade mission. 

The delegation will visit Berlin, Lower Saxony and North-Rhine Westphalia.

Nebraska companies have exported more than $350 million in goods to Germany since 2010, and German companies employ 1,000 Nebraskans.

“Germany has the European Union’s largest economy and is a valued trade partner for Nebraska,” Ricketts said. “This trade mission will deepen our relationship with Germany, and open the door to new partnerships.”

Nebraska trade mission participants will meet with public officials, community leaders and private companies in Germany.

The first stop for the trade mission is in Berlin, where delegates will participate in business tours and government meetings. The delegation will then visit the Agritechnica Agricultural Trade Show in Lower Saxony. Agritechnica is the world’s leading trade fair for agricultural machinery, with over 2,800 exhibitors from 52 countries.

In addition to the trade show, other promotional events and business meetings will occur in Lower Saxony and in North-Rhine Westphalia, the final stops for the trade mission.

Because space is limited, anyone considering taking part in the trade mission should contact Lori Shaal at lori.shaal@nebraska.gov immediately to express interest.
