Governor Terry Brandstad says there are global opportunities to increase Iowa’s exports. The Governor was in Pella recently to discuss export opportunites for local businesses. He says emerging markets in China or India have already provided an avenue for agricultural exports like beans and beef. The governor would like to open trade offices overseas in places like South Korea, where economies are strong and growing. Brandstad says previous trips to that part of world during his first run as Governor yielded positive economic effects and established relationships.
