"I hope to have the opportunity to feature Nebraska and the benefits our state holds for this kind of investment and collaboration," Ibach said.
Other workshop participants will include representatives of Chinese and international companies and investment banks, national and state agricultural leaders and agribusiness consultants. The trip is part of Heineman's broader push to help Nebraska tap into lucrative Chinese markets.
A trade mission he led in July included several agreements between Nebraska and the Chinese government, including a "sister state" relationship between Nebraska and the Shaanxi Province and a new trade office in Shanghai. Heineman also agreed to work with a Chinese trade council to help connect Chinese and Nebraska businesses.
