On March 16th the North Dakota Trade Office, in partnership with Her Majesty’s Government, hosted an agriculture roundtable to discuss furthering the partnership between the United Kingdom and North Dakota. Speakers included Consul-General Alan Gogbashian (Chicago), Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for North America Antony Phillipson, Jennifer Groover, Senior Policy Advisor for Trade & Agriculture UK Embassy, Washington D.C., and ND Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring.
The roundtable was attended by a broad selection of North Dakota’s agricultural leaders. The discussion, in addition to the overall UK/ND relations, centered around greater cooperation in trade and investments, both in the UK and ND, in the agriculture space. Delegates spoke about opportunities, issues, and outlook for greater cooperation with North Dakota’s ninth largest trading partner.
This event is the first of series of UK/ND roundtable’s that will focus on various industries and opportunities. Please be sure to check in periodically for times and dates of the next roundtable discussion.
