Oregon’s potato and dairy representatives are part of a delegation accompanying Governor Kitzhaber to Asia next week. 

 

Oregon Agriculture Department's Katy Coba says they hope this trip will open up more opportunities for trade:  “I think always when we can travel with the governor, it just brings that much more credibility to the state as a whole. A governor in Asian countries is a very well respected figure and it just draws more attention to the whole delegation. Certainly, agriculture can benefit from that."

 

The three destinations: China, Hong Kong and Japan seem to be very interested in more agriculture and possibly more dairy products such as powdered milk, yogurt and cheese.

 

The delegation will be in Asia from October 14th through the 25th.
