Oregon: Trade Mission to Include Agricultural Export Customers in Asia

News Date: 09/13/2011

A nearly two-week trade mission to three key Oregon export markets is about to be launched with a delegation that includes Governor Kitzhaber and Oregon Department of Agriculture Director Katy Coba. Agriculture occupies a major portion of the mission, which includes stops in Japan, South Korea, and China. The trans-Pacific trip is designed to reassure current customers of Oregon agricultural products as well as to prospect for additional opportunities.

"These three markets are pivotal to Oregon's export economy, particularly for agricultural products," says Coba. "Our delegation will include industry folks who have a vital interest in export development. But any time we can have the governor travel to these markets, it provides additional access and terrific opportunities for Oregon agriculture. We just can't afford to pass it up."
