Idaho governor to lead Taiwan-Hong Kong trade delegation

Idaho Gov. Brad Little plans to lead a trade delegation to Taiwan and Hong Kong this fall.

The Idaho Wheat Commission June 7 said the trade mission presents an opportunity to recognize loyal client millers in Taiwan and to explore ways to grow that business. Wheat growers from the state have exported for more than 50 years to Taiwan, where the U.S. has a dominant share of the market.

The commission plans to send a representative on behalf of growers and is taking applications from grain handlers interested in participating. Participation expenses are covered as part of the fee the commission pays, but travel expenses are not. Information is available from IWC Executive Director Blaine Jacobson at
