Nixon encourages agricultural exploration with Cuba

Governor Nixon directing the Missouri Department of Agriculture to look into opportunities for farmers, producers, and growers to benefit from trade with Cuba.

“Cuba provides exciting prospects as an export market for the world-class goods produced by Missouri farmers,” Gov. Nixon said. “Our agricultural exports are up 14 percent this year alone and help drive our state’s economy and the growth of Missouri jobs. I look forward to the Department of Agriculture detailing the additional economic opportunities we would gain by expanding our trade market in Cuba.” said Nixon in a news release.

Nixon’s office is moving forward to work with officials at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. State Department.
