NE Opens First Trade Office in China

nebraska-and-chinaNebraska has officially opened its first China trade office in Shanghai.

The new office is part of a push by Gov. Dave Heineman to help Nebraska businesses tap lucrative international markets. Heineman celebrated the opening Monday in Lincoln.

Heineman says value-added agriculture exports are a key growth area between Nebraska and China.

The Nebraska Center in China represents a gateway for Nebraska companies entering and expanding in China. Services will include business counseling, promotion of products and services, and help in identifying potential business partners. The center will also concentrate on attracting more Chinese investment to Nebraska.

Grace Gui, formerly of Omaha, will serve as the office’s executive director in China. Gui served as a system and senior database administrator for Stapes in Omaha from 2001 through 2012.

    WHAT?!!!! Why are we helping boost Red Chinas economy with our business? We should be working to keep jobs and business here in Nebraska not rewarding shipping business overseas to commies! There’s hundreds of Nebraskans in need of Jobs! There are plenty of non commie countries to invest in as well! Why not Britian or Switzerland if your going to go that route? WTF is wrong with our dear governor…..

    Why in the world would anyone want to attract (more) foreign investors to Nebraska? China? Canada? Japan? France? Anyone? Ahhhh. What is in it for the Governor & his lackeys? Ridiculous excuse of a Nebraska representative…. but those who put him in office deserve what they get!
