LINCOLN — The Nebraska Sorghum Producers Association (NeSPA) has partnered with the US Global Leadership Coalition (USGLC) for meetings to be held across the state in early September. NeSPA represents Nebraska Sorghum Growers’ efforts in regard to federal and state policy matters. USGLC advocates for the 1% of the federal budget that supports foreign aid.
The “Nebraska Exports and Global Leadership” meeting series will be held in Omaha, Lincoln, Kearney, McCook, North Platte, Valentine, Norfolk, and Columbus September 7th through the 10th. Discussions will focus on America’s role on the global stage, and the resulting implications for foreign trade and agricultural markets development.
“Nebraska Sorghum is excited to host USGLC Regional Director, Ms. Alexandra Moyer,” stated NeSPA Executive Director, Nate Blum. “The work of USGLC helps to maintain and build relationships which are of vital importance to ongoing international markets development for sorghum and other agricultural products. America’s commitment to helping our allies around the world also maintains and helps build consensus and partnerships which necessarily decrease incidences of conflict, military interventions, and human suffering. NeSPA firmly believes that the partnership between our organization and USGLC is integral in growing value for Nebraska Ag producers while providing stability in a rapidly changing world.”
“As one in five Nebraska jobs is tied to the $7 billion in exports from the Cornhusker State each year, America’s foreign assistance programs provide a tremendous return on investment,” stated USGLC Regional Director, Alexandra Moyer. “By helping to build new overseas markets for products like sorghum, biofuels, bioplastics, manufactured goods, and other agricultural products, Nebraska families benefit every day from America’s engagement in the world.”
