U.S. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon is trying to open up more overseas markets for Central Oregon farmers and business people. Wyden chairs the Trade Sub-committee and says that negotiations are taking place right now that could open up markets in Japan, Vietnam and Malaysia, which could be good news for Oregon. "What we do best in Oregon is that we grow things. We're an Ag state. One out of 7 jobs depends on exports,  and what we ought to be doing, and this is certainly true for Central Oregon. We ought to growing things here making things here and then shipping them, manufacturing. I want to get into these foreign markets particularly Asia."  Wyden also says if the discussions are successful, iconic Oregon products like beer, wine, blueberries, hazelnuts, cherries and pears may be served at tables across Asia.  Wyden was in Bend last week to talk about the possibilities of drone testing coming to Central Oregon.
